Djamileh Hearts the Tiffany Dome

Djamileh_design.jpgWe enjoy going to the opera, but classical opera plots tend to drag on for-ev-er. Luckily, this is not a problem with Georges Bizet’s Djamileh, a free mini-opera enjoying its Midwest premiere at the Chicago Cultural Center this August. The one-act “oriental fairy tale”, set in an Egyptian palace, will appropriately be taking place beneath the newly renovated Tiffany dome of Preston Bradley Hall.

The performance is part of the Chicago Cultural Center’s Summer Opera program, now in its 10th year.

Tickets are free, but must be obtained in person from the Storefront Theater Box Office at 66 E Randolph Street, with a limit of four tickets per person.

Preston Bradley Hall , 78 E. Washington St., Sunday, 8/3 at 3:30 p.m., Tuesday, 8/5 at 7:30 p.m., Thursday, 8/7 at 7:30 p.m., Free
