Paris in Chicago: BOOK NOW!


This is a great (and rare) opportunity to see one of the world's top companies, Paris Opera Ballet, performing jewels of the French repertoire in a fabulous city without the cost, time commitment, or jet lag of a trip to Europe. Please note the signup deadline is September 29th. We currently have the few remaining excellent orchestra seats on hold, but tickets are already on sale to the general public and going fast even this early, so this trip has to be booked now.
