One of Shakespeare's darkest tragedies gets thrillingly re-envisioned in Ernest Bloch's opera Macbeth. Written in 1906, Bloch's version condenses the bloody tale of the murderous Scot's illicit rise to power into 110 minutes of hair-raising music and heart-wrenching emotion. The dashing Nmon Ford sings the role of the show's titular character, bringing Macbeth to life with a riveting blend of dangerous delusion and unchecked ambition. Chicago Opera Theater presents Bloch's Macbeth for the first time in the Windy City, the long overdue local premiere of a rarely seen masterpiece. Learn More

One of America’s most acclaimed choreographers and Chicago native Lar Lubovitch returns home with his company’s 40th Anniversary Tour. The Harris Theater will present Men’s Stories, Lubovitch’s powerful exploration of masculinity, biography and character, selected as a winner of a 2008 touring award by the National Dance Project. Lubovitch has described the work as “a dance that opens up, like a book, to reveal the story of the men inside the dance.” Rounding out the program is Little Rhapsodies, a virtuoso dance for three male soloists set to Schumann’s Symphonic Etudes and Dvorak Serenade, a 2007 work praised by the Financial Times at its world premiere as “…one of Lubovitch’s big, sweeping ensemble works, the sort he does best.”
The Presenting Sponsor for this engagement is Ms. Pam Crutchfield. Celebrating 40 years of the Lar Lubovitch Dance Company.
The Lead Foundation Sponsor for this engagement is the New England Foundation for the Arts.
