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.
