Graphic from Lyric Opera web site. I hope there will be a t-shirt.
Found on the Lyric Opera of Chicago web site, some statistics, which I quote directly:
- More than 225 acclaimed singers, dancers. and musicians performing.
- Almost three years of design, development and construction of more than 80,000 pounds of scenery, hundreds of costumes, and countless wigs.
- An army of theater professionals and craftspeople working behind the scenes to coordinate more than 30 automation motors during more than 100 hours of technical rehearsals.
- Running time of four hours and 55 minutes, with two intermissions, about the same time as last year's SF production, suggesting that any cuts are small.
