"A Streetcar Named Desire" (Lyric Opera): Perfect, Steamy, Hot Opera

"A Streetcar Named Desire" (Lyric Opera):  Perfect, Steamy, Hot Opera

Lyric Opera presents the Chicago premiere of A Streetcar Named Desire. Blanche is a faded southern belle. She resonates old-fashion sophistication and a prudish nature. She is visiting her younger sister in New Orleans. Stella is happy to see her. The beer-drinking and poker-playing brother-in-law is not as welcoming.
