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

A dark and stormy night finds Betty and Bobby packing up a cabin in Neil Labute’s In a Forest, Dark and Deep. . Joe Jahraus’ direction in this newly acquired bigger addition – the old National Pastime Theatre, now Profiles’ Main Stage – doesn’t miss a beat, even with the additional breadth. He treats the characters as old friends, finding their way in extraordinary circumstances. Natasha Lowe and Darrell W. Cox - sister and brother - backslide into the same archetypes most siblings do - at once insulting each other but in the next moment sharing a nostalgic chuckle. Labute’s recognizable dialogue - along with Thad Hallstein’s set, Jeffrey Levin’s sound and John Kohn’s lighting– add just the right amount of spell. When the play ends you realize you’ve been taken on a ride and back again. Trust me you’ll be talking about these characters for weeks to come. Definitely go see it.

“LaBute writes about the elusiveness of truth and the deceptiveness of appearances, taking the audience on a theatrical rollercoaster ride!” — The Guardian
