The Lyric Opera of Chicago says the lineup for its 60th season will include an appearance from famed soprano Renee Fleming.

Fleming also is the opera's creative consultant. On Monday the Lyric said she would appear in a revival of the Metropolitan Opera's "Capriccio" during the 2014-2015 season. The season also includes new productions of "Don Giovanni," ''Tosca," and "Anna Bolena."

Lyric also plans productions of "Il Trovatore," ''The Passenger," ''Porgy and Bess" and "Tannhauser." The opera will continue its American Musical Theater Initiative with a production of Rodgers and Hammerstein's "Carousel."

Famed Chinese pianist Lang Lang will perform in May 2015.
