Fodor's Review

This company shrugs off esoteric notions of opera, preferring to make productions that are accessible to aficionados and novices alike. The production of Nixon in China, a contemporary American work detailing conversations between the former U.S. president and Henry Kissinger (among others), is a shining example of the Chicago Opera Theater's open-mindedness toward the operatic canon. From innovative versions of traditional favorites to important lesser-known works, the emphasis is on both theatrical and musical aspects. Fear not—performances are sung in English or in Italian with English supertitles projected above the stage. They're held at the Harris Theater in Millennium Park.
