William Mason, General Director
William Mason, general director of Lyric Opera of Chicago, announced in January the repertoire, principal singers, conductors, directors, and designers for Lyric's 2010-11 season. Joining Mason for the season announcement were Lyric's music director, Sir Andrew Davis, and stage director Barbara Gaines (artistic director, Chicago Shakespeare Theater). Lyric's 56th season "runs the gamut from Handel to Britten, covering a span of 300+ years that also includes sterling works by Verdi, Puccini, Bizet, Wagner, and Gilbert & Sullivan," Mason says. says Mason. "As a result, 32,000 fewer tickets will be available, meaning that subscribing is more important than ever," says Mason. "To maximize our seating capacity and to ensure that we remain economically viable during the recession, Lyric has made some changes in its subscription packaging, including shortening some series and thereby lowering the cost," Mason says. Subscribers will have the opportunity to purchase single tickets at discounts for operas not in their series. "In addition, we are freezing subscription prices at the current levels for the 2010-11 season," Mason says. Depending on the series they choose, subscribers can enjoy up to two operas free. Among the best subscription deals next season will be the A1, B1, and E1 5-opera weekday series, offering subscribers a 40% discount over single tickets - the equivalent of getting two operas free, Mason says. This season Lyric patrons can choose from 23 different subscription packages, including ten economically-priced 4-opera series. "We're increasing the number of 4-opera series we offer from six this season to ten next season," Mason says. The 25% down payment plan option, which was introduced last year, will again be available for the coming season, Mason says. "Just 25% down secures your subscription seats with a credit-card payment, with the remaining three payments automatically charged monthly." The TRADEONE option remains popular for subscribers to fewer than all eight operas, and free ticket exchanges are an appreciated benefit for full-season subscribers. "These wonderful perks provide our subscribers with increased scheduling flexibility," Mason says. NExTDiscount Student Tickets are again be available, Mason says. "They cost just $20 for seats throughout the Civic Opera House, and are offered through the internet to fulltime, degree-seeking college students (who register online as NExT members) for regular performances of selected Lyric productions. Students from nearly 200 universities and colleges have purchased NExT tickets. Membership for NExT is free." Free pre-opera lectures will once again be offered next season before every performance of every opera (except Oct. 1, opening night of the season) to enhance the operagoing experience, Mason says. "Lyric's website is extremely content-rich and is constantly updated during the season," Mason says. "This is an exciting new production," says Mason. "It's a powerful story and the best of early Verdi. "Barbara Gaines is a brilliant director who has made Chicago and Shakespeare her own," Mason declares. Says Mason, "We have two fantastic young casts. "This is a comic masterpiece, an incredibly successful adaptation of the Shakespeare play," says Mason. Says Mason, "This is a traditional production with handsome sets, and we have a very impressive cast. "Gilbert and Sullivan have married wit and cleverness, and true sentiment, to gorgeous melodies, and we have a Mikado cast and production that will do their work justice," says Mason. "Deborah Voigt is currently making her role debut as Minnie in San Francisco, and will reprise the role at the Met before returning to Chicago," says Mason. "Anything that Peter Sellars does is consistently fascinating," says Mason. Will make his role debut as the Mikado, his first English-language role at Lyric Will make her long-awaited role debut in The Girl of the Golden West at San Francisco Opera in June 2010
