RESERVATIONS FOR THIS EVENT ARE FILLED. Join Lyric for a unique, musical adventure, journeying through the timeless tale of Hansel and Gretel through the eyes of the title characters themselves. As the famous brother and sister do battle against ever-present hunger, a dark forest, and a dangerous witch, you’ll be guided through a site-specific show with four different scenes in Chicago’s beautiful North Park Village Nature Center. Featuring members of the Lyric Opera of Chicago Chorus and Orchestra, this whimsical story is the perfect introduction to opera for families with kids of all ages. Hansel and Gretel in the Park is free, but capacity is limited and the show does require advance registration for tickets. Visit www.lyricopera.org to reserve your ticket. In a partnership with the Greater Chicago Food Depository, non-perishable food items and donations will be accepted onsite as we partner offer support in ending hunger and its root causes. In accordance with Be Safe Chicago Guidelines for Parks and Recreation Activities, participants in this activity will be required to wear a mask and practice social distancing at all times while participating. Patrons who are exhibiting any symptoms of COVID-19 are asked to stay home and join us for an event when symptoms subside.
