 Calvin "Cal" Boender has successfully led North Development, his Chicago-based development firm, for more than three decades. Outside of his professional endeavors, Calvin Boender enjoys a variety of relaxing pursuits, including plays and opera. The Civic Opera House has been Chicago’s most well-known opera house since it opened in 1929. Constructed by Samuel Insull, the building features an Art Deco theme with a spacious theater, grand foyer, lobby, and four dining rooms.

 The opera house was originally constructed as the home of the Chicago Civic Opera, whose manager commissioned Hamilton Forrest's Camille as the opera house’s premiere performance. After Lyric Opera of Chicago purchased the site in 1993, the group initiated an enormous three-year project to fully restore the building. With 3,563 seats, the Civic Opera House is the second-largest opera house in North America and holds downtown Chicago’s largest stage. The venue has hosted a cadre of famous performers, and in 2014, USA Today recognized the site as one of the world’s best opera houses.
