Community Engagement Programs - Lyric Opera of Chicago


Lyric's programs for adults enrich the opera experience for life-long aficionados, first timers, and everyone in between. They also engage many Chicagoans who would otherwise be unable to share in the magic of opera.

A variety of lecture and discussion events held throughout the Chicago area provide opportunities to learn about unfamiliar works, gain new insights on old favorites, and hear the ideas and opinions of the artists involved.
