The Harris Theater for Music and Dance announces an all-new Beyond the Aria program featuring mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato, who will perform with two current Ensemble members of Lyric Opera of Chicago: South African tenor Lunga Eric Hallam and Mexico soprano Denis Vélez. Accompanied by pianist Craig Terry, with special guest cellist Kenneth Olsen, the artists will perform repertoire of their choosing. The program, filmed live at the Harris on May 13, is available to stream for free beginning today thru May 27, 2021, on the Theater’s HT Virtual Stage.

Beyond the Aria is produced by the Harris in association with Lyric Opera of Chicago, typically presented cabaret-style on the enclosed Pritzker Pavilion Stage at Millennium Park. The series offers audiences one-night-only experiences with some of the greatest operatic talents of our generation performing alongside rising stars, accompanied by series artistic director and pianist Craig Terry. Each program presents a unique opportunity for the artists to perform engaging repertoire as solos and ensembles and is always a surprise for audiences to experience together.
