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

Performances were great - so good that I found myself not caring that I didn't know what they were saying and stopped reading the subtitles since I just wanted to watch the performers and hear their (amazing) voices instead of being distracted by reading. Overall a good production, though it could get a bit repetitive at times(we heard you the first 7 times, move on to something different Othello!).
*Opening Night (Oct. 5): *The Opening Night Gala is a chance to mix and mingle with fellow music lovers in the glorious Civic Opera House. Thrill to the inspiring energy of a new season while sipping champagne and enjoying delectable sweets and savories. The reception takes place in the opulent Rice Grand Foyer and throughout all lobbies before the performance and during intermission. This is a black tie event and formal attire is requested.
* Running time for this show is approximately 3 hours.
