STARS OF LYRIC OPERA AT MILLENNIUM PARK


 FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 2018 at 7:30PM


Each September, Chicago's music lovers come out to experience the Stars of Lyric Opera at Millennium Park. Pack your picnic basket and bring your friends to enjoy a free outdoor performance featuring some of opera’s most thrilling music in a concert that is sure to whet your appetite for our much-anticipated season.

The evening features excerpts from Lyric’s upcoming season, including the entire Act II from La bohème, as well as selections from Mozart’s Idomeneo and Verdi’s Il trovatore and La traviata. The concert will also include further selections by Verdi and Puccini and Saint-Saëns.

The all-star lineup will feature the stars of La bohème (Maria Agresta, Danielle de Niese, Michael Fabiano, Zachary Nelson, Adrian Sâmpetrean, and Jake Gardner) along with the Chicago Children’s Chorus and members of the Ryan Opera Center as Domingo Hindoyan leads the Lyric Opera Orchestra and Chorus.

Lyric will post live updates via social media throughout the evening. Join the conversation with #LongLivePassion and follow @LyricOpera on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube for updates and behind-the-scenes content. There will be chances to win tickets to the 2018/19 Season during the evening, and the first 5,000 guests to arrive will receive a free Lyric giveaway item.
