Carnaval! celebrates the end of the holiday season before the introspection of Lent begins, culminating in Mardi Gras, or “Fat Tuesday.” This season, Lyric Theatre @ Illinois will mark the occasion with music and dance from Latin America, the Caribbean, and the Mediterranean—from opera and zarzuela to bossa nova, musical theatre, jazz, and more. Patrons are invited to bring Mardi Gras masks, dress up, and have some refreshments while enjoying a variety of festivities in the Lobby beginning at 6pm. At 7:30, all will head to the Great Hall for an unforgettable concert. Carnaval! is a dazzling, lively event that will be fun for the whole family!
