Save the Date for Opening Night

Join us for an unforgettable evening of magnificent opera, fine dining, and dancing with the stars!

Save the date now for October 1st, an evening you will not want to miss. Picture this: a glamorous red-carpet entrance to Lyric's Civic Opera House with photographers on hand to capture every moment of the excitement.  Once inside, you and your fellow music lovers will mix and mingle amid the sparkling ambience before the curtain rises on what is considered to be one of the greatest musical achievements in Western culture. The first installment of four operas in the legendary Ring cycle, Das Rheingold is the beginning of a journey that every opera enthusiast will want to experience. Revel in the atmosphere of the most fabulous party on the Chicago social calendar!

Lyric patrons attending the Opening Night Gala performance are also invited to purchase tickets to the Opera Ball, co-chaired by Mrs. Regan Rohde Friedmann and Mrs. Eileen Murphy.  This fantastic soirée celebrates the inauguration of another remarkable Lyric Opera season and is held at the gorgeous Hilton Chicago immediately following the performance. The black-tie affair gives attendees an opportunity to celebrate Opening Night with the stars of Das Rheingold!
