The 2022/23 Season opens with a thrilling continuation of Lyric’s acclaimed early Verdi series. Ernani reveals Verdi at his most irresistibly melodic and dramatic. A persecuted nobleman forced to disguise himself as an outlaw, Ernani loves beautiful Elvira, but she’s pursued by two other men — her uncle, Silva, and the King of Spain, Carlo. This “love quadrangle” inspires grand-scale arias and ensembles, bursting with the unique energy and drive that were Verdi’s own. Music Director Enrique Mazzola leads a quartet of world-renowned Verdians in Lyric’s sumptuously beautiful production that is designed to bring you an exhilarating operatic experience.
