And by most accounts, the results were out of this world. The opera became an immediate hit when it premiered in Paris and is now considered a bel canto masterpiece. Lyric Opera of Chicago has assembled a stellar cast, who’re more than ready to tackle the work’s notorious vocal challenges, including the acclaimed Albina Shagimuratova and Lawrence Brownlee. Sung in Italian with projected English translations, I Puritani revolves around a pair of star-crossed lovers caught up in a tumultuous English civil war and forced to deal with political intrigue, deception and even madness.
