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

An excellent,engaging chamber orchestra from Quebec returning to the Harris with a program which also featured force of nature and Metropolitan Opera star mezzo soprano Stephanie Blythe,in works by Handel,Bach,Telemann,Haydn with an encore by Blythe of an aria from Gluck's opera Orfeo ed Euridice,which she has performed at the MET,including in MET HD LIVE.Les Violons du Roy is always most welcome and the concert was met with standing ovation by an enthusiastic audience,which deserves to be larger the next time Les Violons performs,which we hope will be next season at the Harris..
