Few Broadway musicals are more beloved than The Sound of Music, and now you can see it live in a production by Lyric Opera of Chicago, with Hollywood star Billy Zane stepping into the role of Captain von Trapp. It's the story of Maria, an aspiring nun who takes a job as governess to the widowed Captain von Trapp's seven children. As she gradually earns the heart of the family -- and their father -- the von Trapps are threatened by the rise of the Nazis, and must figure out how to escape Austria. "My Favorite Things," "Edelweiss," "Do-Re-Mi," "Climb Ev'ry Mountain," "The Lonely Goatherd" and the soaring title song are just a few of the unforgettable melodies in this classic work of musical theater. The cast includes opera stars Christine Brewer and Elizabeth Futral, Jenn Gambatese of Broadway's Wicked and All Shook Up, and Edward Hibbert of Frasier. Learn More
Adapted by Aaron Posner and Chaim Potok
From the novel by Chaim Potok
Directed by Shade Murray
Adapted from Chaim Potok’s classic novel, The Chosen follows the unlikely yet enduring friendship between two Jewish teenagers: one Orthodox and the other Hassidic. Despite their radically different outlooks on the world, the boys learn to rely on each other as they bridge the divides within their faith, their neighborhood, and their families. Artistic Associate Shade Murray (The Subject Was Roses) directs this heartfelt story about understanding, respect and reconciliation.
