STARS OF LYRIC OPERA AT MILLENNIUM PARK

MILLENNIUM PARK


Join Lyric for a free concert under the stars! Pack your picnic basket and bring your friends to enjoy acclaimed Lyric star voices as we celebrate a new season.

Sir Andrew Davis, Lyric’s music director, will lead the Lyric Opera Orchestra and Chorus, and an array of outstanding soloists including soprano Ana María Martínez; mezzo-soprano Tanja Ariane Baumgartner; baritone Quinn Kelsey; bass-baritones Eric Owens and Samuel Youn; and basses Tobias Kehrer and Wilhelm Schwinghammer. Also performing will be current members of The Patrick G. and Shirley W. Ryan Opera Center.

The Lyric Opera Chorus will be prepared by chorus master Michael Black.

The program will include excerpts from the upcoming season's repertoire of Carmen, The Magic Flute, Eugene Onegin, and Lucia di Lammermoor, as well as selections from other operas by Gounod, Mozart, Tchaikovsky, Verdi, and Wagner. (Program subject to change.)

We'd also like to hear your voice! Click here to brush up on your "Va, pensiero" from Verdi's Nabucco and join Lyric's orchestra and chorus, under the direction of Sir Andrew Davis, as we unite Chicago in song.
