Verdi Voices

There's nothing more thrilling than the passion of Verdi as it pours forth in a stunning live performance. Join us at Lyric this February to warm up with an afternoon of thrilling vocal fireworks when Verdi Voices takes the stage. You'll hear beloved favorites from Aida, Otello, and more, plus some gorgeous and more rarely-performed Verdi duets and arias that are sure to become favorites. Soprano Tamara Wilson and tenor Russell Thomas, two Lyric Opera of Chicago stalwarts, team up with Music Director Enrique Mazzola at the podium for repertoire which is known as his specialty. With the full power of the Lyric Opera Orchestra, this is a one-date-only, tour-de-force concert experience that you won't want to miss.
