The short answer is yes. Upon leaving O'Hare look for ground transportation then taxicab sign. Get in the line and tell the cab maitre d' "Evanston" so he/she can alert the driver. Cost: $50 (including tip). Getting back to the city may run you the same depending on the time of day. Might be wise to consider the Metra (train) or El (Subway). Train runs about every hour www dot metrarail dot com while the subway may require a connection if there is construction. Cost for...
Going rate is $3 (scaling up for boots, etc) ...so all in a "fin" takes care of it.

Basically, (and this my first post so apologies for the length), one must logically separate the "enjoyment" of opera into two camps: attending vs non-attending. There is a major difference but enjoyment can be had no matter which path is preferred. Since you are just starting out I would rec this easy crash course.
