Itzhak Perlman in Recital

  • Featuring - Pianist Rohan de Silva

Itzhak Perlman’s Lyric Opera debut was a sensation — and he returns to Lyric in 2017 for his only Chicago appearance of the season. Accompanied by pianist Rohan De Silva, this reigning virtuoso of the violin performs a new program with his internationally acclaimed artistry. You’ll be able to savor every stunning note as his Stradivarius sings, thanks to large-screen video enhancement of his performance.

The Chicago Tribune calls him “One of the commanding talents of our time, able to reach an audience with his first note and hold ears and hearts indefinitely thereafter,” while The New York Times raves, “Itzhak Perlman aims to please and never misses.”

Don’t miss the opportunity to experience one of the great artists of our time — only at Lyric!
