Lyric Opera reaches labor agreement

The show will go on this season at the Lyric Opera of Chicago.

The opera company has reached an agreement with performers and musicians, ending the threat of a lockout or strike by three major unions.

Contract details have not been released.

The one-year agreement still must be ratified by union members and the opera board, but the Lyric's upcoming season is expected to go on as scheduled, including a free concert at Millennium Park next month.
