Watch Lyric Opera's BEL CANTO Now!

Lyric Opera Returns to PBS Great Performances

After a 25 year hiatus, PBS once again hosts a Lyric Opera production in its Great Performances series.  This broadcast was originally shown on 300 TV stations across the country.

A few hours prior, many hundreds of Chicagoans filled the Civic Opera House to watch an earlier preview.  Tickets were free and given out on a first come first served basis.  Chicago—in all its diversity, and children to adult—enjoyed this treat together.

Jimmy López, the brilliant Peruvian composer who developed the score, was in the audience to enjoy this with Chicagoans.  As a teen he had lived through the events that were the launch point for Ann Patchett's novel of the same name.
