Beyond the Aria

Janai Brugger, Will Liverman, Kathleen Felty, Craig Terry

This new Beyond the Aria program, filmed on the Harris Theater stage in February 2021, brings the intimacy and spontaneity of the Beyond the Aria series to the virtual setting. Soprano Janai Brugger, baritone Will Liverman, and mezzo-soprano Kathleen Felty (a second-year Ryan Opera Center member) join series artistic director and pianist Craig Terry to perform repertoire of their choosing.

About the Series
Beyond the Aria is produced by the Harris Theater in association with Lyric Opera of Chicago, typically presented cabaret-style on the enclosed Pritzker Pavilion Stage at Millennium Park. The series offers audiences one-night-only experiences with some of the greatest operatic talents of our generation performing alongside rising stars from The Patrick G. and Shirley W. Ryan Opera Center, accompanied by series artistic director and pianist Craig Terry. Each program presents a unique opportunity for the artists to perform engaging repertoire as solos and ensembles, and is always a surprise for audiences to experience together.
