In a sprawling Central Park West apartment, former movie star Julie Bascov and her sister-in-law Faye bring their families together for their traditional holiday dinner.

Twenty years later, as 2001 approaches, the Bascovs' seemingly picture-perfect life may be about to crumble. A stunning play infused with humor, The Assembled Parties is an incisive portrait of a family grasping for stability at the dawn of a new millennium.

A clandestine love affair sets the stage for a battle full of fury and anguish in the Lyric Opera of Chicago's production of Norma at the Civic Opera House.

But she's violated that code by falling in love with the leader of the occupying army, and leads a double life to conceal her secret.
