Lyric Opera of Kansas City to perform Elvis Costello’s The Juliet Letters this weekend

Spencer Fane is proud to be an underwriter of the Lyric Opera of Kansas City’s Exploration Series, featuring in its next performance, Elvis Costello’s The Juliet Letters.

The inspiration for The Juliet Letters is Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. In 1992, Costello heard that the lovelorn actually write letters to Juliet and leave them at her supposed balcony in Verona, Italy. Costello came up with his own stylized “letters” and set them to music. This weekend’s program will be sung by the Lyric Opera Resident Artists accompanied by the Fry Street Quartet.
