Chicago Opera Theater toasts Verdi's 200th with rarely performed opera

To honor the 200th birthday of composer Giuseppe Verdi, Chicago Opera Theater — noted for performing operas in English — will present Verdi’s rarely-performed “Joan of Arc.” The choice of the opera was chosen via a poll of COT audiences.

The performances at the Harris Theater, 205 E. Randolph, on Sept. 21, 25, 27 and 29, will feature Suzan Hanson singing the title role. The production will be directed by David Schweizer, with the New Millennium Orchestra conducted by its artistic director Francesco Milioto.
