About this event:
WHAT: An opera that brings Philip Glass to Disney
SO WHAT: The Perfect American takes us to the last three months of the legendary Walt Disney’s life. Shuffling between the dreary present and memories of his iconic, American upbringing, Philip Glass fills in the spaces where the facts we know end. In addition tot the opera audience members will have a chance to have their portrait done by local Chicago artists starting an hour before each performance. Artists range from cartoonists, caricature artists, to watercolorists. Choose your favorite style and celebrate the magic of art. Portraits are free, available at a first-come, first-served basis.
