First time at the Opera - very impressed with the facility and the entire experience of light lunch, pre-opera lecture and performance. The performance is very powerful. The seat was very good.

Getting our there tickets for Madama Buterfly was a real breeze considering the fact that the show was a few minutes to start. We were redirected to a station across the foyer, though.
We loved our seating location & the opera, of course. Goldstar...continued

It was extremely easy to pick up the tickets since Goldstar had a separate table for pick up. The seats were on the main floor and were terrific. Madame Butterfly was great.

Pretty good venue. The performance was okay. I'd say 7/10, and that's generous. I know it's an opera, where they project as opposed to microphones, but I thought the vocals were a little low volume. Then again I was in the balcony, so I get what I...continued

The set was incredible. A much less elaborate production but the simplicity highlighted the singing and drama.

My first "live" opera, so I can't give it 5 stars (I may love other productions better or more), but this was certainly a well-performed and beautiful production. Well-cast and very simple yet beautiful sets.

Seats were great - only about 30 rows back from the orchestra. Found the set a little stark and the costumes lacking in color and richness. The performances were good although there was (what felt like) a 5 minute interlude of orchestral music...continued

The entire experience could not have been better. I love the Lyric and Madame Butterfly - with my so excellent Groupon choice seats - exceeded my expectations. Bravo!

This was my first opera. My husband took me as part of an anniversary gift. We had a great time! I really enjoyed the performance! I wasn't expecting English sub-titles either...not that I paid much attention. The story was easy to follow...continued

I was a bit apprehensive after reading the opening night reviews, but I loved it. I haven't seen the previous production, so I had nothing to compare it with, but out of the 8 operas I have been to at Chicago Lyric so far, this has been my favorite.

It was a most unbelievable performance. Passion together with love and hate throughout (all in good taste). Highly recommend and if I wasn't going to the ballet this weekend I might attend again.

It was easy to purchase tickets. I looked at the price range and the opera house seating chart, so I know the section that I was purchasing. We had great seats and thoroughly enjoyed the opera. My friend and I will purchase opera tickets again,...continued
