Is it a) Ancient Egypt, b) Europe in the Age of Enlightenment, or c) a land beyond our imagination? The answer is: d) all of the above. Mozart's delightful, adventurous, and slightly daffy opera that tests the limits of loyalty and love leaps off the Winspear stage in this mesmerizing Lyric Opera of Chicago production. From giant serpents and hot air balloons to magical monarchs and mysterious cults, be prepared for an extraordinary musical and theatrical experience, from start to finish! A dazzling ensemble cast led by soprano Ava Pine (TDO's 2008 Die Fledermaus), tenor Shawn Mathey in his company debut, and baritone Patrick Carfizzi (The Italian Girl in Algiers, 2009) promise to end this season of "Tragic Obsessions" on a very high note, indeed! Sung in German with English supertitles.
