Lyric Opera of Chicago is offering archival recordings of previous Lyric Unlimited productions to stream for students free of charge. These productions will be closed-captioned in English and Spanish, and accompanied by online classroom resources.

Stay tuned for upcoming streaming opportunities. 

Jason and the Argonauts (grades 3-6)

Jason and the Argonauts will be available to stream from March 15 to April 9. This opera for young audiences was written by Gregory Spears and Kathryn Walat, and commissioned by Lyric as part of the 2016/17 Season.

What do you do when your uncle has wrongfully taken your place as king?
If you’re Jason, you gather your strongest and wisest friends, and set sail on an adventure to win back the throne! This ancient myth of courage and triumph comes to life as Jason and his friends, the Argonauts, search for the Golden Fleece. Along the way, they face sharp rocks, dangerous creatures called sirens, a harrowing dragon, and more trials that ultimately teach them what it means to be a hero.
