When you go to the opera, you need a tuxedo, the penguins at the Shedd Aquarium are already dressed for the occasion.

Since Illinois went into lockdown mode due to the coronavirus, the penguins at the Shedd Aquarium have provided us much needed smiles to get through this crisis.

Now the penguins are getting ready to nest and the folks at the Shedd on Facebook decided to film the happening and use a "remix brought you by the Lyric Opera of Chicago."

According to ABC-7 in Chicago:

While the aquarium is closed to the public, caretakers are onsite 24/7 taking care of the animals, including the penguins," the Shedd Aquarium said. "Both species of penguins are expected to nest for the next few months, which may also result in new chicks joining the colony as early as May.

There are a few other things to look forward to also in May, but until then, we've got the penguins to keep us entertained.
