Behind every great man is a great woman and behind every great King is a great mistress! Leo Fall’s 1922 operetta "Madame Pompadour" has exquisite music, witty dialogue and racy lyrics. It was a tremendous success when it opened and is considered by many to be his masterpiece. We are thrilled to be giving the Chicago, and arguably the American, premiere of the show as originally conceived by Leo Fall and his librettists. Directed by Amy Hutchison, a 21-piece orchestra conducted by Anthony Barrese, choreographed by Sara Stewart Shumann, set design by Andrew Hildner, lighting design by Erik Barry, costume design by Kate Grudichak with singers from the Lyric Opera of Chicago and Chicago Symphony Chorus. This is a must see event! Free parking nearby, wheelchair accessible, but not recommended for children under 12.
