CHICAGO (AP) — An indoor swimming pool will be the setting for three additional performances of Chicago Opera Theater's production of "Orpheus and Euridice."
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel announced Sunday that the city's park district and cultural affairs department are collaborating to make the performances possible.
Last month, the work for clarinet and voice by composer Ricky Ian Gordon was performed in the pool at Eckhart Park with the performers in a small boat on the water. This time, the retelling of the Greek myth will be performed in the pool in Welles Park on Dec. 19, 20 and 22 at 7:30 p.m. Admission is free. Tickets can be reserved at Chicago Opera Theater's website.
A limited number of walk-up tickets will be available each performance starting at 5 p.m.
