My brother and I are given the opportunity every year to see a matinee at the Chicago Lyric Opera.  We take the whole and meet our Dad.  Last year we saw George Bizet’s Carmen – a very interesting opera.  It is somewhat long as it is in four acts, although hot as long as Wagner’s famous – “Der Ring des Nibelungen”.  The music is beautiful and is some of my favorite. Below is the overture.

We think that the conductor is pretty cool.

Here are a few pictures of the Opera House.  I was not able to find any pictures of the actual opera for obvious reasons.
