Free pre-opera lectures will be offered before every performance of every opera in the mainstage season to enhance the opera-going experience.
All pre-opera lectures take place on the main floor of the Ardis Krainik Theatre in the Civic Opera House. Seating is unreserved, and while there is no charge for admission, an opera ticket for that specific performance is required. Doors open approximately 15 minutes before the start of the lectures, which begin an hour before the performance begins.
Ticket for that date’s opera performance must be shown for lecture admission.
Lecture details for the 2012/13 season TBA.
There are no pre-performance lectures for Oklahoma! and The Second City Guide to the Opera.
Lyric's pre-opera lectures are generously made possible by:
Mr. and Mrs. Edward O. Boshell, Jr.
Robert and Ellen Vladem
James and Michelle Young
