Surprisingly, Danielle de Niese had never portrayed Musetta until a few months ago in London, in the production of La bohème that opens Lyric’s season next month.
Welcome to Lyric Notes, Lyric Opera of Chicago's eNewsletter
In just one month, the 64th Season opens with a gorgeous new production of La bohème, a coproduction between Lyric Opera of Chicago, Royal Opera House Covent Garden, and Teatro Real Madrid. Soon after, Matthew Polenzani returns to our stage in the critically acclaimed title role of Idomeneo, starting October 13. In this issue, you will also learn about the many additional amenities that Lyric offers to make your day or night at the opera a unique experience, including new afternoon tea service for Sunday matinees. We also introduce you to "People of Lyric," the new initiative designed to let you share your story and get to know us, the people of Lyric, along the way.
Don't forget — Stars of Lyric Opera at Millennium Park is just 2 days away, so pack your picnic basket and we'll see you there.
Lyric’s new season is fast approaching. Whether you’re excited to return or to make your debut appearance at the opera house, there are all sorts of new and continuing ways to enhance your experience.
