Jane Austen's "Persuasion"

Featuring chamber orchestra, period music, Regency costumes, and Irish dancers!

Chamber Opera Chicago

Friday 22 July 2016

Chamber Opera Chicago, a professional not-for-profit opera company devoted to making great opera affordable, is excited to be performing its original musical adaptation of Jane Austen’s Persuasion, which has toured multiple UK and US cities over the last three years and was a popular event at the 2015 Edinburgh Fringe Festival. The fully staged production features a chamber orchestra with Celtic and period instruments, authentic Regency costuming and sets, beautiful projected scenery, and world-champion Irish dancers. This widely acclaimed stage production features Stage Direction by Nick Sandys (British Director/Actor, Metropolitan Opera, Lyric Opera of Chicago), assisted by Kyle Dougan.

Written at the height of her literary career, Persuasion is one of the most compelling love stories ever penned. Anne Elliot has rejected a proposal of marriage from the one man she truly loved, Captain Frederick Wentworth. She was persuaded by her godmother that Captain Wentworth was unworthy, but after a separation of nearly a decade, he returns from sea with both rank and fortune. Can Anne win him back? Can he forgive her? Can their lost love be rekindled? Don't miss this authentic rendering of Jane Austen's novel that will transport you back in time!

"No 'Persuasion' needed to see this Chicago treat…Chamber Opera Chicago 's production was a treat for the eyes and ears...astounding!" ~ Emily Scotcher, Isle of Wight County Press
