In yesterday's Sun-Times, Roger Ebert published an essay on the rehearsal of an opera version of Robert Altman's 1978 film A Wedding. The film, shot on location in Lake Forest, told the story of two rich families getting together for a wedding, one old-money family from Lake Forest and one nouveau-riche family from Louisville, Kentucky. Robert Altman had a hand in the libretto of the opera version, which premieres Saturday night at the Lyric Opera of Chicago. More info has been posted at Slowdown.
