ARTSPASS EXCLUSIVE: Faust
Friday, March 9, 6pm
Lyric Opera
20 N Upper Wacker Dr


Who doesn’t long to be young again? It happens for the aging philosopher Faust — he sells his soul to the devil and, in exchange, is transformed into a dashing young man. He falls in love with the innocent Marguerite, with disastrous consequences. Gounod’s masterpiece has been one of the world’s most popular operas for more than 150 years. You’ll know why when you hear the score, which simply bursts with memorable music. Marguerite’s Jewel Song, the Soldiers’ Chorus, the spectacular final trio — these and much more make Faust a sublime experience for young and old alike. Join us for an exclusive dinner and a pre-show talk with David E. Wellbery, LeRoy T. and Margaret Deffenbaugh Carlson University Professor of Germanic Studies and Lyric artistic staff.

Tickets: $15 for currently registered UCHICAGO STUDENTS ONLY. UCID Required; Limit 1 ticket per UCID.

Patience
Friday, March 9, 7:30 pm
Saturday, March 10, 7:30 pm
Sunday, March 11, 2:00 pm
Mandel Hall


Sparkling satire and wit adorn Gilbert and Sullivan’s masterpiece operetta that is a send-up of romantic sex symbols—and the public’s hopeless infatuation with them. But the sex symbols in Patience are poets: the fleshy, doom-and-gloom Reginald Bunthorne and the rustic, idyllic Archibald Grosvenor. Although Archibald has already stolen the hearts of Bunthorne’s female poetry groupies, he has yet to capture the affections of Patience, the village’s innocent and winsome milkmaid—the very same milkmaid that Bunthorne pines for as well! But Patience is not smitten with passions and poetry, and neither are the hopelessly banal Dragoon guards, who must reluctantly become poets-in-training to win back their ex-fiancées from the clutches of aestheticism.

One of Gilbert and Sullivan’s most successful shows of all time, Patience exceeded the popularity (and box office) of HMS Pinafore and The Pirates of Penzance. Featuring a particularly witty book by Gilbert, a delightful soprano ingénue, and some of the most poignant musical moments in the canon, Patience is a brilliant showcase of both Gilbert and Sullivan at the height of their creative powers.
