COT's 41st Season brings you three Chicago premieres featuring the best that opera has to offer: sumptuous scores, incredible vocal artistry, and gripping drama. First, witness a steamy affair which leads to murder in Tobias Picker's Thérèse Raquin. Then revel in a masterful performance by renowned mezzo-soprano Frederica von Stade who returns to COT for Ricky Ian Gordon's A Coffin in Egypt. Finally experience Mozart's exquisitely beautiful Lucio Silla written by the 16-year-old genius. Subscribe today!Read More
This September be swept away by another Chicago premiere! This powerful opera follows the torments that Macbeth and his Lady experience as they fall prey to a spiral of ambition and murder. Doomed by his own guilt, Macbeth is slain by a man "not born of a woman." Bloch's forceful and striking score provides the expressive soundscape for this bone-chilling thriller, where "fair is foul and foul is fair."Read More
