“This contemporary tragedy brings to life the white-knuckle rush and devastating true stories of three climbers caught in a blizzard on Mt. Everest in 1996. As the first staged performance since the world premiere in Dallas, Everest promises to take you on an operatic journey unlike anything you’ve experienced before.

‘Together, Gene Scheer’s unrelenting libretto and composer Joby Talbot’s luminous and inventive score surrounds us with the insurmountable beauty of the Himalayas, the demons and dreams driving each climber upwards, and the undeniable danger that infuses every exhausted step with fear.”

Tickets for the 2017-2018 season are available for purchase now. “From duels to climbers, jesters to barbers, this spectacular season will have you laughing and crying… all in the same breath.”

Please head over to the Lyric Opera Facebook Page and leave a note of thanks for supporting the local cycling community.
