"Carmen" at The Chicago Lyric Opera

OLLI and the Opera Illinois League joined forces for a day and had an amazing day enjoying a matinee performance of “Carmen” at the Chicago Lyric Opera.

"Carmen," the most famous of Georges Bizet's operas, is set in Seville around the year 1830 and deals with the love and jealousy of Don José, who is lured away from his duty as a soldier and his beloved Micaëla by the gypsy factory-girl Carmen. Stan Ransom, frequent OLLI instructor, accompanied the group to enrich our understanding of the opera’s subtleties.

After the performance, participants enjoyed dinner at Pegasus, one of the top-rated restaurants in Greektown.

OLLI thanks the Illinois Opera League for this first-time (and successful) joint trip.
