‘The Second City Guide to the Opera’ Brings the Funny to the Civic Opera House

The Lyric Opera/Second City partnership confused everyone at first, but after Saturday night’s performance, it’s all starting to make sense.

In case you weren’t one of the lucky 3,700-plus Chicagoans to score a ticket to Saturday night’s The Second City Guide to the Opera, fear not—the Lyric Opera posted a few videos to YouTube for the greater public to enjoy. The two-hour show, starring the Lyric’s creative consultant Renée Fleming and the actor Patrick Stewart, enjoyed rave reviews and welcomed several hundred new audience members to the Civic Opera House. Hopefully that means a second act isn’t too far off, Renée?
