The Lyric Opera of Chicago will confirm later today that its entire season is cancelled through to June 2021.
‘As the State of Illinois moves through its five-phase plan of reopening, performing arts companies on Lyric’s scale are still slated to be part of the final phase. Operating on anything close to a normal basis until that phase is reached is simply not possible,’ the company is telling artists and their agents.
The one dud note is this: ‘You are now welcome to accept other work that emerges within our original contract period’.
Well, thanks for that.
