Light Opera Works is now Music Theater Works

Same great live musical productions with full orchestra on Chicago’s North Shore!

On September 10, 1981, Light Opera Works opened in Evanston, Illinois. Today, 37 years and 107 productions later, Light Opera Works has been rechristened Music Theater Works to more accurately reflect what we do—light opera and operetta, Broadway classics, Great American Songbook concerts and popular educational programs for young people. Join us for our 2017 season!
