Main Street Opera presents The Consul

  • Chicago Temple, First United Methodist Church 77 W. Washington Street #2 Chicago, IL 60602 United States (map)

One of the great American operas of the twentieth century, this Pulitzer Prize-winning drama wowed Broadway during its initial run with its haunting melodies and powerful arias. Inspired by real-life events, Menotti spins a tragic tale of one woman's struggle to flee a violent police state. Performed today as we face a global refugee crisis, The Consul is as timely and heartbreaking in 2016 as it was at the height of the Cold War.
