Internships at Lyric Opera

Lyric Opera of Chicago internships are available within the administrative office throughout the year for students who wish to gain experience in the arts administration field.

Internships are accommodated in a variety of work areas, based upon the interests and skills of individual applicants. Areas most frequently able to offer internships include Marketing, Public Relations, Development, IT, Human Resources, and Artistic Operations.

Availability of assignments in specific areas is dependent upon workload needs during the time period of the desired internship. Internships are paid and include a nominal travel stipend. Other benefits include mentoring, professional development, complimentary tickets or ability to attend dress rehearsals during the operatic season, backstage tours, available course credit, and "brown bag" lunch hour presentations.
