Fodor's Review

The handsome home of the Lyric Opera of Chicago is grand indeed, with pink-and-gray Tennessee-marble floors, pillars with carved capitals, crystal chandeliers, and a sweeping staircase to the second floor. Designed by Graham, Anderson, Probst & White, the second-largest opera house in North America combines lavish Art Deco details with Art Nouveau touches. Tours are given a few times a year.
