This Moving Tale About Brotherhood and Family Ties Will Touch Your Heart

Are you ready for an evening of opera? Chicago Opera Theater continues its 2018/2019 season with the Chicago premiere of the contemporary opera The Scarlet Ibis. Don’t miss out on the chance to see this moving tale on February 21 at Studebaker Theater!

Based on James Hurst’s classic American short story, The Scarlet Ibis is a heartfelt tale about brotherhood, nature and family, set in North Carolina against the backdrop of World War I. It tells the story of a young boy named Doodle and his relationship with his brother, exploring the ways people ‘other’ those who are different and questioning what it means to be ‘normal.’

Chicago stage and movement director Elizabeth Margolius joins conductor and contemporary music expert David Hanlon to bring this story to life. Join COT General Director, Douglas Clayton, and The Scarlet Ibis composer, Stefan Weisman, for a pre-opera talk before the performance. Please arrive 1 hour prior to curtain. Pre-opera talks are free and open to all attending the opera.

Ticket start at $45 and can be purchased on at www.chicagooperatheater.org/box-office/buy-tickets/.
