OKLAHOMA! Lyric Opera Of Chicago On WRTI, July 13, 1 PM

“People Will Say We’re In Love”…“Surrey With The Fringe On Top”…“I Can’t Say No”…“Out Of My Dreams”…and more!  You know the songs and you love them all. Set in the West just after the turn of the last century, the high-spirited rivalry between the farmers and cowboys provides the colorful backdrop for one of the greatest Broadway musicals of all time. Here is a story that is both touching and gripping—about growing up and falling in love, dreams and nightmares, and the promise and exuberance of a new land on the verge of statehood.

Based on the play Green Grow the Lilacs by Lynn Riggs, Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II's OKLAHOMA! is gloriously presented by the Lyric Opera of Chicago. Saturday, July 13, 1 to 4 pm.
