Sunday Opera - "Don Quichotte" by Jules Massenet from Lyric Opera of Chicago
Miguel Cervantes' illustrious hero will be tilting at windmills this Sunday, 6/18, at 3 pm. Jules Massenet's "Don Quichotte" from the Lyric Opera of Chicago will star Feruccio Ferlanetto in the title role with Clementine Margaine as his Dulcinee, and Nicola Alaimo as Sancho. Sir Andrew Davis will be leading the Lyric Opera Orchestra and Chorus. After the opera, host Michael Kownacky will continue the Massenet afternoon with a gorgeous ballet version of "Manon" compiled from pieces in Massenet's catalogue by Leighton Lucas (and Hilda Gaunt) with no music from Massenet's "Manon."
