Welcome to Lyric Notes, Lyric Opera of Chicago's eNewsletter
There's nothing like summer in Chicago! As we enjoy sunny days and summer fun, we also look forward to the 2015/16 Season, which more subscribers are joining each day. This month's Lyric Notes features upcoming artist debuts, a preview of beloved tunes from Mozart's The Marriage of Figaro, and a sneak peak Lyric Unlimited summer premiere. Also learn about a much-anticipated new production of Rossini's well-known fairy tale, what we're reading this summer, and more! Packages are still on sale — and single ticket sales go on sale in July.
Lyric Unlimited's 2014/15 season was marked by three spectacular new productions, and there's still one more to come! Lyric Unlimited has commissioned an exciting new children's opera, Second Nature, to be premiered at the Lincoln Park Zoo in August.
If you walked down the streets of Vienna in 1786, you'd probably have heard people singing, humming, or whistling tunes from Mozart's latest triumph, The Marriage of Figaro. Today the Figaro melodies remain fresh, characterful, and totally irresistible, as you'll discover in Lyric Opera's new production.
There's nothing quite like Rossini to add sparkle to a season, and this fall, the melodic master's take on the timeless fairytale Cinderella gets a new-to-Chicago production that is sure to leave audiences laughing from the overture to the happily-ever-after ending.
