The Chicago engagement of the new traveling production of The Light in the Piazza began at the Lyric Opera House December 14. The production of the Adam Guettel and Craig Lucas musical stars Renée Fleming as Margaret Johnson; joining her in the Windy City is Solea Pfeiffer (Almost Famous, City Center's Evita) as Clara.

Olivier winner Alex Jennings (The Crown) reprises his performance as Signor Naccarelli after appearing in the Daniel Evans-helmed production's world premiere in London. The cast also includes Rob Houchen as Fabrizio, Marie McLaughlin as Signora Naccarelli, and Malcolm Sinclair as Roy Johnson—all three having performed in the London and Los Angeles engagements.
