The Lyric Opera Chicago Opens Its 2018-19 Season with a Star-studded Red Carpet on October 7, 2018

The Lyric Opera of Chicago kicking off its 2018/19 season with a new production of “La bohème.” In celebration of opening night a slew of celebrities walked the red carpet. They include director and actor Mario Van Peebles, Marina Squerciati (“Chicago PD”), and Nick Gehlfuss (“Shameless,” “Chicago Med”). Word has it Jesse Spencer (“House,” “Chicago Fire”), Rachelle Lefevre (Twilight saga, “Proven Innocent”), Chicago Bears’ Eric Kush were also on hand and more than 3,000 guests for the glittering black-tie event. One of the most popular—and most performed—operas in the world, La bohème inspired the hit musical Rent and follows the lives of six relatable young-adult bohemians experiencing the highs and lows of life as broke artists living in 1830s Paris.
