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

Great show for kids 5 or 6 and older. The show is too long to hold the attention of a younger child. It gets distracting with all of the younger ones talking and crying during the show.. Save your money if you have young children. If you have older children theyll enjoy it.

I took my grandchildren ages 11 and 13 and they loved it. It kept me entertained also. However, I do not think it is for young children. I believe it was too long for them and the younger children could not sit still for the entire performance.
Quotes & Highlights
“Shrek The Musical is a modern day romantic tale with a twist that tells the story of real friendship, true love, sorted life lessons, with misguided fairy tale misfits, lots of laughter and upbeat music, a green ogre and his sidekick donkey, a feisty princess, a lonely fearless dragon – and of course a happy ending everyone looks for in a fairy tale. Shrek The Musical indeed delivers." —Examiner.com
