Lyric Opera reaches labor agreement

August 17, 2011 (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.
