Lyric Opera of Chicago will welcome audiences once again to the Lyric Opera House for the start of the company's 67th season this fall, with two Italian works in repertory in September and October.
Both operas are conducted by Maestro Enrique Mazzola and launch his inaugural season as Lyric's new music director.
A brand-new production of Verdi's Macbeth, by Sir David McVicar, takes the stage Sept. 17—Oct. 9, with a new-to-Chicago production of Donizetti's The Elixir of Love, by Daniel Slater, from Sept. 26—Oct. 8.
Season subscriptions are on sale now. Single tickets for Macbeth and The Elixir of Love go on sale in August. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit LyricOpera.org or call 312-827-5600.
Lyric will offer virtual streams of performances for ticketholders only, as an alternative to attending in-person, should some audience members not yet feel comfortable returning to the theater.
