The Eye and Eye's Delight

Opera Atelier

Opera Atelier will return to the Harris with a special presentation of The Eye and Eye's Delight.

Filmed by young Canadian videographer Marcel Canzona, this piece was featured as the black and white segment that opened the company’s virtual production of Something Rich & Strange. The Eye and Eye's Delight is a new composition by Edwin Huizinga and showcases soprano Measha Brueggergosman, the Artists of Atelier Ballet, and members of Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra.

The Eye and Eye’s Delight is a joint dedication to celebrate the life of Patricia Barretto (1974-2020). Patricia Barretto served as Opera Atelier's Executive Director from 2011 to 2015, before joining the Harris Theater in Chicago, as Vice-President of Sales and Marketing, and later as President and CEO in 2017.
