Lyric takes charge of its destiny

The Baltimore Sun

When Evita tangos onto the Lyric Opera House stage this week, listen closely to the creaking of those venerable floorboards. You just might hear the 113-year-old institution quick-stepping into the future.

Andrew Lloyd Webber's 1979 musical blockbuster will be at the Lyric for only three performances, but this show represents a new course for the venue, because it was selected by the theater's staff instead of by an outside promoter.

If you go Evita will be performed at 8 p.m. Friday, 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. Saturday at the Lyric Opera House, 140 W. Mount Royal Ave. Tickets are $45-$65. Call 410-547-7328 or go to
