In-person backstage tours are currently on hiatus.
Whether you're a life-long aficionado or a first-time opera goer, Lyric offers a growing number of introduction and enrichment experiences. These unique initiatives enable Lyric to more deeply engage its patrons while providing new audiences an opportunity to explore the world of opera.
For each opera in Lyric’s season, music historian and opera expert David Buch hosts a session illuminating the work’s creation, its composer, its musical and dramatic highlights, and its particular magic.
The Opera Insider Series is currently on hiatus.
