La traviata Feb 16 - Mar 22, 2019  
Lyric Opera La traviata
 
There's a reason that Verdi's tragic romance La traviata is one of the most popular operas on the planet. Of course, there's the music, with exquisite arias like "Sempre libera" and the mournful "Addio del passato." Then there's the bittersweet love story of the beautiful, pleasure-loving yet frail courtesan Violetta, who unexpectedly finds true (and ultimately tragic) love with a younger man. But above all, what sets La traviata in a league of its own is its humanity and its heart. It's a truly timeless tale of moral hypocrisy and selfless sacrifice, and in the character of Violetta, Verdi and librettist Francesco Maria Piave have given us one of opera's most fascinating heroines, a woman of boundless humanity and emotional depth.

But thanks to Handel's incomparable genius, Ariodante also offers deeply soulful arias to melt any listener's heart. Don't miss this long-awaited Lyric premiere, gracing the stage at Lyric Opera of Chicago.

When a group of actors gathers together to give a presentation about a long-forgotten-or possibly never remembered-genocide, they realize that summaries based on history books aren't nearly enough to capture the complexity of human extermination-or human interaction.

Before she was one of the greatest mythical monsters of all time, Medusa was a kind, beautiful sea-nymph in Athena's service. Unparalleled in both her beauty and devotion to the Gods, Medusa catches the eye of the charming but narcissistic Poseidon. Interested only in the passions of the spirit, and not the flesh, Medusa has no choice but to reject the greedy God. She not only suffers violence at the hand of Poseidon, but also unknowingly incites a deep-seated jealousy in Athena, with horrific and disturbing consequences. Medusa Undone explores the social problem of rape culture, our tendency to victim blame, and the great injustice suffered by female victims of abuse of all kinds.
