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 really great. I really loved most of the story and the fact it was trying to bridge culture via music and dance. But there was a moment of violence to the one woman of the show with no resolution. It was such an overwhelming moment and to not resolve or even really acknowledge what was happening was just poor. The woman's role and what was done with it was so disappointing. And I am not usually a person that goes all crazy about women and their rights but this was ridiculous for women, hip hop and break dancing. It made it seem negative. Yay ballet and Bach for not suffering.

The location was gorgeous. It was also a nice surprise to walk into the hall and hear a Red Bull DJ spinning with tons of cash bars to buy drinks. The performance was good. It started alittle slow at first. It's a 70 minute show yet 20 minutes of...continued
