Attendees of the Lyric Opera's Masquerade Ball

This will be a Halloween of operatic proportions!

The Lyric Young Professionals will host its first ever Night at the Opera House: A Halloween Masquerade, on Saturday, October 31, from 8pm to midnight. The Grand Foyer of the Civic Opera House provides a majestic and elegant venue for this event with its rich detailing and historic Art Deco and Art Nouveau architecture. We can’t wait to see how the space will be transformed for the occasion!

Night at the Opera House is a fundraiser that will benefit the internationally renowned Lyric Opera of Chicago, whose mission is to express and promote the life-changing, transformational, revelatory power of great art and opera.

The event will feature tastings from local restaurants including Emilio’s Tapas, Celeste, and Oruna. The open bar will feature Chicago Tribune’s Beer of the Month: Gamma-Ray Ginger Wheat Beer from the soon-to-open Empirical Brewery. This will also be the first party in the Civic Opera House featuring a DJ, which rarely hosts events targeted to the 21-45 demographic. Partygoers will be rocking out to DJ KJ’s high energy mix, and roaming members of Pyrotechniq’s troupe will add to the party’s whimsical ambiance.
