Today is your last chance to see Matthew Worth perform in Benjamin Britten's timely opera "Owen Wingrave." As an enticement to those of you within traveling distance of the Windy City, here are some more pictures, courtesy of the Chicago Opera Theater. If you haven't been to one of their performances, you are missing great singers and wonderful productions on a limited budget. They may not be the Chicago Lyric Opera, but they can pack the same punch as their bigger counterpart. And when was the last time you saw Owen Wingrave in a big house?

  1. In the bottom photo he looks like Anthony Andrews in "Brideshead Revisited."

  2. Classy singer, classy rendition of "If I Loved You".

  3. Just caught this production tonight from the third row. Absolutely stunning with a great cast. Mr. Worth has a magnificent voice and he can fill out a pair of tux pants like nobody's business!

  4. So how many people will attend OWEN WINGRAVE expecting to hear "If I loved you"?

  5. Aw, yey! I miss Matty so much! He's the bestestest :)

  6. He was there when I was at Tanglewood and I had a TOTAL CRUSH on him. HOT HOT HOT. Keep posting more of him.
