The Lyric Opera of Chicago presents LA TRAVIATA.

Alongside the extensive spectacle of Wagner’s Parsifal, the Lyric is simultaneously offering a Verdi classic. La Traviata is simply gorgeous.

Seeing these offerings back to back showcases why the Lyric is world renown.  Read the rest of my review at Chicago Theater Beat.
