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

Quotes & Highlights
“Under Deiorio’s unflinching direction, with fierce fight choreography by Scott Cummins and Julia Neary, the fearless actors forge a mighty bond as a pair that has lived together for many years on a New Zealand farm, and endured jealousy, loneliness and a period of wartime separation.” -Chicago Sun-Times
“It’s the emotional wringer that they put themselves through before that baptismal coda that truly impresses.” -Chicago Tribune
“The violent sexual action is equally disturbing and fascinating because it is a love story. Within their passionate frenzies, Fowler and Bozzuto show complete trust. Their intimacy is shocking and endearing. Their response is primal and honest.” -Chicago Theatre Beat
“Skin Tight, a new work by the new company Cor Theatre, is the most perfectly astounding piece of theater I have seen since Goodman’s “The Iceman Cometh”. I can’t recommend it highly enough. It should extend, it should tour. It is scary, moving and touching. Go see it. You won’t get a word about the plot out of me. Figure it out yourself. That is always half the fun. The floor is covered with wrestling mats. There is a bathtub, some apples, and a very sharp knife. Enough said." -Chicago Stage Style
“Skin Tight is one of those little gems that needs to be seen to be fully appreciated. It ekes out the power of live theatre magnificently. What a engrossing hour of theatre! I can’t imagine a finer off night show.” -Chicago Critic
“For me, this gem quite accurately reflects a single average day for a couple—its fights, lulls and rushes of passion—only with the theater’s harrowing urgency and perpetual threat.” -New City Stage
This show features full nudity with strong sexual content and strong violence. Recommended for ages 18 and up.
