Welcome to Lyric Notes, Lyric Opera of Chicago's eNewsletter

With the last performances of 2018 finished, it's time to celebrate the holidays! In this month's issue, browse our holiday gift guide and be inspired to find that perfect gift for the friends and family in your life. When the second half of our season is back in 2019, we return with La bohème and Cendrillon, two fan favorites that opened to rave reviews earlier in the season. Do remember to get your tickets to experience a pair of highly anticipated Lyric debuts — Nina Stemme in the title role of Elektra with conductor Donald Runnicles on the podium, opening February 2.

As always, we are grateful for your support and for your generosity in sharing the gift of Lyric with others. We couldn't do it without you. 

Happy Holidays!
