Sound of Music at the Opera House?


Friends and colleagues,
Some of you may know my first job was at Lyric Opera and I have many fond memories of working there.  My good friend shared this offer with me and said it's a show not to be missed. It also happens to be my favorite movie of all time so can't wait to see this performance! Derek and I will be attending on Friday, May 9. Care to join us and grab a bite?

April 25-May 25 at the Civic Opera House


This weekend, Lyric opens a limited, 4-week engagement of the Rodgers and Hammerstein hit musical The Sound of Music — and you've never seen such a grand production of this Broadway family favorite!
Billy Zane, known for his starring roles in Titanic and Chicago on Broadway, stars as Captain von Trapp, with a dazzling cast that features Jenn Gambatese (Wicked, Disney's Tarzan) as Maria, plus Edward Hibbert (Max), Christine Brewer (Mother Abbess) and Elizabeth Futral (Elsa Schraeder). The production comes to life with beautiful new costumes and grand-scale sets, and delights with the glorious sound of the Lyric Opera Orchestra and Chorus — 62 members strong, an unprecedented ensemble for most musical theater productions.
With beloved favorites from "Do-Re-Mi" and "Edelweiss" to "My Favorite Things" and the renowned title song, don't miss sharing The Sound of Music with a new generation.



Billy Zane

My Favorite Things
Teacup yorkies, A League of Their Own, and Oscar Wilde: the stars of The Sound of Music share with us some of their favorite things. Read more on Lyric Lately.
