Chicago Lyric Opera Performance

Chicago Lyric Opera, Rhoda and the Fossil Hunt, kids performance tickets giveaway.

Rhoda and the Fossil Hunt is based on a true story of paleontologist Dr. Henry FairfieldOsborn, famous natural artist Charles R. Knight, and Knight’s young granddaughter Rhoda. In the early 20th century, Knight was tasked with bringing the fossils housed at the American Museum of Natural History to life for visitors. Through his detailed paintings, he took viewers millions of years back in time to see dinosaurs as active creatures instead of just fossilized skeletons. When Rhoda accompanies her grandfather to the museum, she is awestruck by these exciting fossils and the lifelike images he creates.

In the opera, Rhoda is at the museum and is hunting for the missing fossils of a newly discovered dinosaur. With the help of a friendly Tyrannosaurus Rex skeleton and a cavewoman, she uncovers clues about the past and learns about the exciting connection between art, creativity, history, and science.
