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.
