Lyric Opera in Chicago

Show Map
Extraordinary productions of major operas, in the impressive Civic Opera House, overlooking the river; local legend has it that the back-story behind business magnate Samuel Insull's decision to build it was the inspiration for the opera scenes in ''Citizen Kane''. Although highly acclaimed today, there was a minor controversy among purists when they began to project English titles above the stage for non-English operas.
