Welcome to Lyric Notes, Lyric Opera of Chicago's eNewsletter
In this edition of our e-newsletter read the rave reviews from Lyric's "electrifying" La traviata (through March 22) and learn more about the Lyric premiere of Handel's Ariodante — one of the greatest glories of Baroque opera, onstage until March 17. With West Side Story rehearsals starting in just one month, we offer an inside look at what it takes to put such a grand scale Broadway production on our stage. Plus don't forget there's still time to get your tickets for the Renée Fleming 25th Anniversary Concert & Gala, a night of celebration that you won't soon forget!
We hope you enjoy this new issue and we look forward to welcoming you back to Lyric!
Sometimes opera takes you to completely unexpected, dramatically powerful, provocative places -- if you’re open to new experiences. That’s certainly the case with the Lyric premiere of Handel’s Ariodante, on multiple levels.
How does a director approach bringing an opera based in recent American history to life for today's audiences? Lyric Notes went to a rehearsal to talk with Director Matthew Ozawa to learn more.
