Spend A Night at the Opera (Lofts) with Preservation Chicago

Want to see where the real Sopranos hung their hats? This is the place. Gargantuan sets, elaborate costumes, props, backdrops – this is where they were all designed, constructed and stored for the Lyric Opera of Chicago.

Built between 1912 and 1924, it was the world’s largest scene studio and warehouse. Using every brick original to the structure, it’s currently being transformed into “The Opera Lofts,” high-end living space as unique as the building itself.

Date: Friday, September 28, 2007
Time: 6:30 – 9:00 p.m.
Where: The Opera Lofts2545 South Dearborn Street

Visit the Opera Lofts website for more information on this historic building, and visit the Preservation Chicago website to purchase tickets for the event.
