It was “Loverly,” indeed!
As the summer winds blew in over Lake Michigan last night, Tuesday, May 16, 2017, the Oscar Isberian Rugs family was thrilled to share an evening of warmth and gratitude, hosting more than 200 interior design guests at the Lyric Opera‘s elegant performance of Lerner and Loewe’s “My Fair Lady.”
From the moment the orchestra began, the charming story of Eliza Doolittle, the young Cockney flower seller, and Professor Henry Higgins, the phonetics professor who teaches her to speak like a proper lady, came to life in front of a masterfully spare set by Tim Hatley, with decadent costumes by Anthony Powell, beautiful staging by Olivier Fredj and simply exquisite performances under the direction of Robert Carsen.
A private, preshow cocktail reception was held in the elegant Graham Room 90 minutes prior the 7:00 curtain, where the Tatosian family and the Oscar Isberian Rugs’ staff thanked industry partners and friends for their patronage and business over the last year.
Addressing the crowded room, Oscar Tatosian said, “We are so pleased to invite you to experience not only the sounds, but also the grand space that is the Lyric Opera in Chicago. It is a true jewel of our city. All of us, Sarkis, Emily, Lucine and my mother, Mrs. T, who flew in from Florida for tonight’s event, are so happy to share and celebrate the beauty of performance art with those of you in this room who are masters in the decorative arts. It will surely be an inspiring performance. We thank you for your business and are so glad you could join us.”
