The Lyric Opera of Chicago broadcasts return with ten-operas, including Lyric's premiere of the rarely performed French version of Gluck's Orphee et Eurydice (1744 Paris Version.) 

This highly-anticipated production marks Lyric's first collaboration with The Joffrey Ballet. The Lyric Opera of Chicago airs Saturdays at 1 p.m., beginning May 12, 2018 on Classical 91.5.

Opera is a fusion of the best of all of the performing arts — with the power to thrill and move you. Lyric’s 2017/18 season is filled with wonders that you can only experience in the opera house. Prepare for the scale and spectacle that only opera can deliver when a new production of Die Walküre, the second opera in our critically-acclaimed new Ring cycle, takes the stage. Later in the season, Puccini’s Turandot returns for the first time in more than a decade in a grand, new-to-Chicago production.

You'll hear singing that will astound you with its strength, agility, and beauty. Whether you join us for a journey to the exotic shores of Ceylon in The Pearl Fishers or the decadent court of Mantua in Rigoletto, your time at Lyric is a chance to be transported from your daily routine through the power of music and theater.
