A few months ago I had the pleasure of taking in a performance by the Lyric Opera with my six year old daughter at the Civic Opera House in Chicago. We went to see The Sound of Music and decided to make a “girls weekend” out of the show. We booked a room at a local hotel and headed out towards Chicago from Michigan with a little extra time before the production started so we would have time to explore the city. Luckily, we found several fun things to do within our short 24 hour stay. Read more about our past Chicago trip here: 24 Hours in Chicago
That short weekend together was such a great little getaway for the two of us and an evening at the Civic Opera House was the icing on the cake! The Civic Opera house is a beautiful historic building with tall ceilings, ornate details and an upscale feeling. Plus, the Lyric Opera puts on amazing performances with all-star casts. I would love to make another trip into Chicago to enjoy even more performances from the Lyric Opera soon and definitely plan to add it to my “date night” adventures list.
Are you planning to take a weekend getaway to Chicago or would you like to take in a show at the Civic Opera House with someone you care about? Now is your chance! The Lyric Opera of Chicago has offered to give one of my readers two FREE adult tickets to see Rodger and Hammerstein’s CAROUSEL for their preview performance on April 10th. You’ll get to see it before the public! (Transportation, lodging and food are not included.) Enter below!
CAROUSEL is a musical about love and loss and features recognizable songs such as “If I Loved You,” “June Is Bustin’ Out All Over,” and “You’ll Never Walk Alone”. The production stars Steven Pasquale (CBS’s The Good Wife) as carousel barker Billy Bigelow and two-time Tony Award nominee Laura Osnes as his true love. It’s a great date night type of story! I mean, who ever said spring break had to be just for the kids?
