A backstage tour of the historic Civic
Opera House is a wonderful introduction to the world of opera. Tours also
complement and add relevancy to any and all of Lyric’s other education programs.
Witness the inner workings of the Civic
Opera House and learn what really goes on behind the scenes of a world-class
opera company. See the theater, stage, and dressing rooms; visit the wig and
wardrobe departments; view props displays; venture across a six-story-high
catwalk; and even try on costumes and armor. Students will be inspired by the
tremendous variety of skilled professionals working at Lyric and come away with
the realization that it’s not just singers who can have a career in opera.
