Susan Graham & Nathan Gunn To Celebrate 100 Years Of Bernstein At The Lyric Opera Of Chicago

The Lyric Opera of Chicago is joining hundreds of cultural institutions across the globe in honoring the 100th birthday of legendary American composer, conductor, pianist, and educator Leonard Bernstein.

In honor of his centennial, the Lyric opera will present a concert on March 10, 2018 featuring two-time Tony-nominated Broadway singer and actress Kate Baldwin and opera stars Susan Graham and Nathan Gunn. David Chase will conduct the concert, which is set to include Bernstein’s one-act opera, “Trouble in Tahiti” with Graham and Gunn starring in their role debuts. Lyric Opera ensemble member Diana Newman, Josh Lovell, and Emmett O’Hanlon will comprise the Jazz Trio; all are ensemble members of Lyric’s Patrick G and Shirley W. Ryan Opera Center.

In the second part of the program, Baldwin will join the other artists for the second half of the concert to perform beloved gems from Bernstein’s extensive vocal catalog, including selections from “West Side Story,” “Wonderful Town,” “Candide,” “White House Cantata,” and “Peter Pan.”

“Celebrating 100 Years of Bernstein” will also include a 30-minute pre-concert talk featuring the evening’s conductor Chase.
