Beyond the Aria
Produced by The Harris Theater for Music and Dance, in association with Lyric Unlimited, Beyond the Aria pairs internationally celebrated opera singers of Lyric’s mainstage alongside rising stars from The Ryan Opera Center. Each performance is a one-night-only experience where artists perform a repertoire of their choosing — each is customized by the featured artists — and may include Broadway, American Songbook, jazz, and more. These intimate performances take place “cabaret style,” seated on the enclosed stage of the Pritzker Pavilion at Millennium Park. View the remainder of the 2016–17 Beyond the Aria season here.
