Lidiya Yankovskaya

Chicago Opera Theater is proud to announce new Music Director, Lidiya Yankovskaya.

"Lidiya represents the future of opera. She is as skilled with operas of the past as she is with works of living composers. She often collaborates with other arts and community groups to create productions highly relevant to her audiences."
