Lyric Unlimited Presents an Opera for Young People Jason and the Argonauts

By Gregory Spears and Kathryn Walat

  • Location - Vittum Theater, 1012 N Noble St, Chicago, IL 60642

What do you do when your uncle has wrongfully taken your place as king? If you’re Jason, you gather your strongest and wisest friends, and set sail on an adventure to win back the throne! This ancient myth of courage and triumph comes to life as Jason and his friends, the Argonauts, search for the Golden Fleece. Along the way, they face sharp rocks, dangerous creatures called sirens, a harrowing dragon, and more trials that ultimately teach them what it means to be a hero.
