Opera is Magical
It enraptures our eyes and ears with a beauty, a power, and a splendor that can't be duplicated anywhere else.
This season you can enjoy the best in opera at Lyric, with longtime company favorites as well as four Lyric premieres. From an unforgettable new production of La bohème and the thrilling new Siegfried to the long-awaited return of Idomeneo and our first-ever Ariodante, this opera season will be exciting, moving, and entertaining.
Join us for our eight mainstage opera productions, and a masterwork of American musical theater—Bernstein and Sondheim's incomparable West Side Story. We'll also bring you the much-anticipated Chicago premiere of Jack Perla's An American Dream, plus special events featuring two of the most glorious sopranos in the world: Anna Netrebko and Renée Fleming.
All of us at Lyric look forward to welcoming you to our performances throughout the year. Here's to an unforgettable 2018/19 Season!
