Chamber Opera Chicago presents Jane Austen’s Persuasion: A New Musical Drama
Back by popular demand - ONE PERFORMANCE ONLY! | All ticket sales will benefit the Tivoli Theatre restoration project
Featuring music from Jane Austen’s manuscripts and the era, fully staged with chamber orchestra, beautiful Regency costumes, projected scenery, and world-champion Irish dancers! This new original musical adaptation has toured multiple UK and US cities over the past three years and was a popular event at the 2015 Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

“No ‘Persuasion’ needed to see this Chicago treat for the eyes and ears...astounding!” Isle of Wight County Press
★★★★ Broadway Baby, Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2015
"Flashes of humour, great dancing, a small but perfect orchestra, clever scene changes with very well done projections, and the cast of over 30 all playing their roles to perfection … one of the best evening’s entertainment I’ve had!" Bury Free Press
