Lyric Opera of Chicago hits all the right notes with its upcoming season of shows. There's Don Giovanni, Capriccio, Il Trovatore, Porgy and Bess, Anna Bolena, Tosca, Tannhauser and The Passenger. Your subscription package features tickets for four specific shows -- plus a fifth ticket for any show of your choice throughout the entire eight-show season. Don Giovanni is Mozart's story of a legendary seducer whose selfish arrogance becomes ever more reckless and fatal. In Strauss' Capriccio, the beautiful countess must choose between the amorous poet or the ardent musician. Verdi's Il Trovatore is chock-full of love triangles, revenge plots, murder and children switched at birth, and as much drama as any soap opera. Jazz, blues and spirituals infuse George and Ira Gershwin's classic, Porgy and Bess. New production Anna Bolena is Donizetti's tour-de-force dramatization of the story of Anne Boleyn, the most famous of King Henry VIII's many wives. Puccini's Tosca is filled with political intrigue and includes one of the most beautiful arias in the operatic repertoire, "E lucevan le stelle," sung by Tosca's doomed lover as he awaits execution. Wagner's erotic and sensual Tannhäuser is both racy and lushly beautiful. And finally, Mieczyslaw Weinberg's The Passenger takes you aboard an ocean liner. It's not all smooth sailing, though, as the action vacillates between the pristine white deck above to the dark horrors of the death camp below. Learn More

It was more than I expected. I have personal memories of the church and the south and the old Englewood before the violence, when it was more family oriented. My mother, aunts and grandmotehr would not attend church without a hat or GLOVES. Would see Crowns again, wish it was on DVD. Rear mezzanine took a little bit of an adjustment, however I have been seated in the mezzanine before but not so far back. Acutually you get a full view of the stage. Thank you Goldstar for the savings. Keep me informed.
