Experience one of the country's leading opera companies with Lyric Opera of Chicago's four-show package. You'll get to see four shows for the price of three, including Nabucco, Der Rosenkavalier, Romeo and Juliet, and The King and I. Verdi's Nabucco tells the story of King Nebuchadnezzar, a tale of divine punishment and salvation. With some of the greatest choral music ever written, this is the opera that made Verdi a star. Richard Strauss' sumptuous Der Rosenkavalier, a simultaneously hilarious and poignant look at love, features more than 100 musicians performing the piece's famous waltzes, topped off with some ravishing performances. Charles Gounod captures all the passion of Romeo and Juliet with his soaring opera known for its iconic love duets. Finally, one of Broadway's all-time classics, Rodgers and Hammerstein's The King and I comes to the Civic Opera House in the spectacular 2014 production from Theatre du Chatelet in Paris that sent "critics searching for superlatives" (The New York Times).
