We are thrilled to announce that Beyond the Aria will return to the Pritzker Pavilion stage with four intimate performances this 2022-23 season.

In partnership with Lyric Opera of Chicago, Beyond the Aria features opera luminaries and emerging stars performing repertoire of their choosing in an intimate and interactive setting, against the backdrop of Millennium Park. The 22-23 lineup includes both familiar faces like mezzo-soprano J’Nai Bridges, tenor Lawrence Brownlee, and mezzo-soprano Denyce Graves, and series debuts including tenor Charles Castronovo, and bass Soloman Howard. Each will be joined by series artistic director and pianist Craig Terry, and rising talent from The Patrick G. and Shirley W. Ryan Opera Center Ensemble.

A limited number of cabaret-style table seating with dining options are also available. To reserve a table seat, please contact Raechel Hofsteadter, Director of Development, at or by calling 312.334.2456.
