About the Series
Beyond the Aria is produced by the Harris Theater in association with Lyric Opera of Chicago, typically presented cabaret-style on the enclosed Pritzker Pavilion Stage at Millennium Park. The series offers audiences one-night-only experiences with some of the greatest operatic talents of our generation performing alongside rising stars from The Patrick G. and Shirley W. Ryan Opera Center, accompanied by series artistic director and pianist Craig Terry. Each program presents a unique opportunity for the artists to perform engaging repertoire as solos and ensembles, and is always a surprise for audiences to experience together.
