Now that it feels like summer outside, our work schedule inside the opera house is really starting to heat up as we prepare to bring you a showstopping 2019/20 Season.
In this issue, be sure to check out what books inspired some of today's great operas — including the upcoming Dead Man Walking. We'll also give you an insider preview on Krassimira Stoyanova, who will be seen on stage as Luisa in Luisa Miller, as well as a summer guide to what some of our staff is up to in the off-season.
We also invite you to explore more about the exciting Lyric debut of Blue, which will be presented at The Yard at Chicago Shakespeare in June 2020.
Enjoy this special July/August edition, and we'll see you in September for Stars of Lyric Opera at Millennium Park on September 6 and the special Maria Callas Hologram concert in the opera house on September 7 and the Ryan Opera Center Final Auditions September 15.
