Focus Chicago: Embracing the Generations

Opera Volunteers International meets in Chicago
(Everyone Knows It’s Windy)
Save the weekend of April 23-24 to enjoy an exciting time in the Windy City. The OVI Chicagoans can’t wait to share their experiences with you and, with Chicago Opera Theater, to introduce you to some “less ordinary” opera.

Mosè in Egitto by Gioachino Rossini (Friday), last performed in Chicago in 1863! Opening night of Giasone by Francesco Cavalli (Saturday).

OVI has secured tickets to these COT performances at very advantageous prices!

Our welcome luncheon on Friday will be on an architectural cruise on the Chicago River.

Saturday we’ll hear from a multi-generational, performing arts support group; learn how Chicago Opera Theater is using some innovative programs to attract new, non-traditional audiences; and find out what goes into creating opera for children and adults from a noted composer and conductor.

We’ll stay at the luxurious Hard Rock Hotel right on Michigan Avenue! It’s just three blocks from the Harris Theater opera venue and Millennium Park, and a short walk to cultural attractions and shopping.
