“CHICAGO THEATER IS NOT CHICAGO OPERA THEATER”

Chicago Opera Theater
Ranked #204 of 667 things to do in Chicago
Attraction details
Reviewed 5 July 2012

This listing is a merging of two institutions that have nothing to do with each other. The Chicago Theater -- which is the subject of the photo attached here -- is a commercial venue for comedy and music acts. Chicago Opera Theater (COT) is a small opera company that does about 3 productions a year at the Harris Theater, which is on the edge of Millennium Park. I think it would be fair to say that COT does chamber opera: smaller operas with scaled down production values, emerging singers, and smaller orchestras. They do it very well. COT does unusual works rather than the tired warhorses that the major opera houses do. The ticket prices are far lower than the big boys, and musically, the productions are always first-rate. I highly recommend COT for the serious opera fan.

The Chicago Opera Theatre is not limited to Opera. It is a beautifully restored old theatre with exciting new arts events.
