Opera at the Marble Palace! Enjoy the artists of Chicago Opera Theater at the Driehaus Museum for a melding of the contemporary and the classic in preparation for COT’s fall production of Everest/Aleko at the Harris Theater for Music & Dance!

Hear selections from Joby Talbot and Gene Scheer’s critically acclaimed 2015 opera Everest, chronicling the infamous 1996 expedition up the massive mountain detailed in Jon Krakauer’s Into Thin Air. Singers will then perform selections from Rachmaninov’s gorgeous Russian gem Aleko. Join in the discussion as Staley Music Director Lidiya Yankovskaya leads a conversation around what brings these two eras of art together.
