The Light in the Piazza - 2019 - Chicago

Alex Jennings (Netflix's The Crown) and Solea Pfeiffer (Almost Famous, Hamilton) will join Renee Fleming in the limited Chicago presentation of The Light in the Piazza, for ten performances only, December 14-29, 2019, at Lyric Opera House (press opening Saturday, Dec. 14). The Chicago engagement follows the production's acclaimed run at the Royal Festival Hall in London this summer.



The Light in the Piazza's rich, emotional score is unique amongst 21st-century Broadway musicals and has contributed to its broad acclaim. Unapologetically lyrical and romantic, it was described upon its Broadway debut as having "the most intensely romantic score of any musical since West Side Story" (New York Times). The production moved to Broadway following a world premiere co-production from Intiman Theatre and Goodman Theatre.
