In our fall arts preview (9/11), Deanna Isaacs profiled Jonita Lattimore, a young Chicago-bred soprano cast as Serena in Lyric Opera‘s new production of Porgy and Bess. Apparently Lattimore was one of many good choices the people at Lyric made regarding that show, because they report that it’s sold more tickets than any other production in Lyric history. To help cope with demand they’ve added an extra performance Tue 12/16, 7:30 PM. Tickets run $32-$185. Call 312-827-5600.
