Lyric Opera of Chicago to Host Costume Sale, 6/6

Lyric Opera of Chicago is having a one-day-only costume sale that's open to the public on Sat., Sept. 6, between 9am and 6pm. Admission to the sale is free, with a suggested donation of $5. There will be a donation box at the entrance.

More than 3,000 costume pieces (including a variety of hats) will be for sale in the Rice Grand Foyer of the Civic Opera House, 20 N. Wacker Dr. at the corner of Madison St. Items for sale will be organized according to price, ranging from $1 to $200.

Everything will be sold as is, and prices are final-no bartering. Cash and major credit cards are accepted. All sales are final; no refunds or exchanges. As there are no fitting rooms at the sale, shoppers should dress appropriately to try on costumes over their clothing.

Among the operas represented in the sale are Don Giovanni, The Mikado, The Voyage of Edgar Allan Poe, The Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny, A Masked Ball, The Pirates of Penzance, the Ring cycle, The Flying Dutchman, I Capuleti e I Montecchi, and Die Fledermaus.
