The Scorpions' Sting Opera Overview

Lyric’s annual family opera performance is back with a Chicago premiere that will capture the imagination! While lost in the desert, a group of  archaeology students uncover the Lost Temple of Isis, the ancient Egyptian goddess of healing, and a mythic tale unfolds as they read ancient hieroglyphics. Through the story of Isis, the students learn the importance of knowledge and the power of forgiveness. Recommended for ages 7-12.

Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for children. Choose a date above to order online or call 312‑827‑5600.
