Carousel - 2015 - Chicago Tickets, News, Info & More

Swaggering, carefree carnival barker, Billy Bigelow, captivates and marries the naive millworker, Julie Jordan. But all too soon, they fall on hard times and unbearable loss. Yet the power of love perseveres, as do the tuneful hits, in this masterpiece of American musical theater. You'll hear "If I Loved You," "June Is Bustin' Out All Over," and "You'll Never Walk Alone" all set against the backdrop of an original new production from Lyric Opera.

This American musical masterpiece is headlined by "lust-worthy leading man" (New York Times) Steven Pasquale, star of Broadway and television's The Good Wife, and "sweet-voiced, wholesomely beautiful" (USA Today) Laura Osnes, who was recently Tony-nominated for her title role performance in Cinderella.

This cast of luminaries of the stage and screen is directed and choreographed by Tony Award-winner Rob Ashford and conducted by Broadway's David Chase. The powerful Lyric Opera Orchestra and Chorus will perform for a truly once-in-a-lifetime production you don't want to miss!

'Flight' is an experience that will stay with viewers, as it should. It's an especially poignant production in the aftermath of the US withdrawal from Afghanistan, though it's also a reminder that stories like Aryan and Kabir's existed long before, and will continue to exist long after the political and military dust have settled. But Studio's production is a beautiful, clever presentation of a heart wrenching story, and perfectly captures the love, hope, and loss that drives refugees - and all of us.
