Exclusive: You may now accept other engagementsmain
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.
