Lyric Opera of Chicago 2017-18


September 23- October 15 2017: Orphee et Eurydice
October 7- November 3 2017: Rigoletto The production is ours, that is, with the wonderful Michael Yeargan sets. Attractive cast (Kelsey, Feola, Polenzani).
November 1-30 2017: Die Walküre.  Their new production, with Christine Goerke and Eric Owens.
November 19- December 10 2017: The Pearl Fishers If the production photo looks vaguely familiar, yes, Zondra Rhodes, who did that very splashy Aida in SF. Even Matthew Polenzani and Mariusz Kwiecien could not get me to this turkey of an opera.
December 5 2017- January 27 2018: Turandot
February 4-28 2018: I Puritani An opera I've never seen, but...
February 17- March 16 2018: Così fan tutte
March 3-21 2018: Faust 

March: Fellow Travelers. Singers not listed but worth seeing.
April 27- May 20 2018Jesus Christ Superstar

Piotr Beczala is giving a recital; there's a one-shot Bernstein celebration that will include Trouble in Tahiti on March 18, 2018. I'm thinking....Walkuere.
