Presented 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.

Seating in the choral risers is general admission and available to purchase online. Cabaret-style table seating with dining options is available on a limited basis.
