Notes
Swaggering, carefree carnival barker, Billy Bigelow, captivates and marries the naive millworker, Julie Jordan. But all too soon, they fall on hard times and unbearable loss. Yet the power of love perseveres, as do the tuneful hits, in this masterpiece of American musical theater. You’ll hear “If I Loved You,” “June Is Bustin’ Out All Over,” and “You’ll Never Walk Alone” all set against the backdrop of an original new production from Lyric Opera.

This American musical masterpiece is headlined by “lust-worthy leading man” (New York Times) Steven Pasquale, star of Broadway and television's The Good Wife, and “sweet-voiced, wholesomely beautiful” (USA Today) Laura Osnes, who was recently Tony-nominated for her title role performance in Cinderella. (See full casting details below!)

This cast of luminaries of the stage and screen is directed and choreographed by Tony Award-winner Rob Ashford and conducted by Broadway’s David Chase. The powerful Lyric Opera Orchestra and Chorus will perform for a truly once-in-a-lifetime production you don’t want to miss!
