Since its early days, Lyric Opera of Chicago has been regarded as one of the top three US opera companies, along with the MET and San Francisco. Chicago boasts an opera company with a box office exceeding 100% of capacity each year for the past decade, thanks to subscribers who give their tickets back for resale when they cannot attend a performance.

May 31: Parsifal (Wagner)
June 7: La Traviata (Verdi)
