Opera: Orpheus and Eurydice at the Civic Opera House in Chicago, IL

October 12, 2017

Lyric Opera of Chicago presents “Orpheus and Eurydice”. Civic Opera House, 20 N Upper Wacker Dr, Chicago

One of opera’s most beautiful masterpieces, Gluck’s exquisite drama introduces us to Orpheus, the poet and musician whose every word and note communicate the most overwhelming love for his Eurydice. Refusing to accept her death, he courageously journeys to the Underworld to bring her back to life. The music reaches true heights of eloquence and emotion. Lyric presents Orphée et Eurydice in the Paris version, which contains thrilling ballet sequences that will come to vivid life under the direction and choreography of the legendary John Neumeier (pictured above). This highly-anticipated production marks Lyric’s first collaboration with The Joffrey Ballet. Performed in French with English subtitles.

Runs September 23 – October 15
