Actor Patrick Stewart will help usher in the next generation of collaboration at the Lyric Opera when he and Renee Fleming co-host “The Second City Guide to the Opera” at the Civic Opera House Jan. 5.
The Lyric announced Monday that “Star Trek: The Next Generation”/“X-Men” star Stewart will share the stage with soprano/Lyric creative consultant Fleming (who spearheaded this project) and Lyric and Second City performers for an evening of opera-themed sketches and musical performances. Second City writer-performers have been workshopping the material with Lyric representatives over the past several weeks.
Tickets are $25 to $95 (with $250 benefit tickets including a post-show reception with the performers) and can be bought at the Lyric box office, by phone (312-332-2244) or at lyricopera.org.
