I'm a season subscriber to both the COT and Lyric - and like both for different reasons. At the Lyric you get to see one of the world's great opera companies; at the COT you get to see a company that isn't afraid to take risks. I've seen an opera performed by robots and sparse (but beautiful) renditions of old favorites. The Harris Theater is very nice and it hardly seems like there is a bad seat in the house. The COT makes tickets affordable and your only steps off of Michigan Avenue. I highly suggest that opera lovers get to the COT as quickly as possible to make sure that they continue putting on wonderful presentations.
