Macbeth at Lyric Opera

Lyric Opera of Chicago looks forward to welcoming 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 dynamic 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 September 17-October 9, 2021, with a new-to-Chicago production of Donizetti's The Elixir of Love by Daniel Slater from September 26-October 8, 2021.

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 or call 312-827-5600.

This fall, Lyric audiences can look forward to enjoying greater accessibility and new seats throughout the Lyric Opera House. Thanks to a generous gift from an anonymous donor in support of Lyric's Patron Accessibility Initiative, the theater also has widened aisles, improved sightlines, and better ease of access throughout.

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.
