Broadway Zoom Backgrounds

May 29, 2020

While we await the day you can join us at the Lyric Opera House for a live performance, you can show off your Lyric love with a custom Zoom background. Whether you long to float down the Mississippi River on the Cotton Blossom, dance the night away at an embassy ball, or snap your way through New York City streets, scroll down to find the perfect background for your next virtual meeting or family gathering.

Simply right-click on the image to save and visit the Zoom website for step-by-step instructions to add a virtual background.

Whether it's a work meeting or a happy hour with friends, you can "Shuffle off to Buffalo" with Peggy Sawyer, Julian Marsh, and Dorothy Brock with this fun image from Harry Warren and Al Dubin's tap dance spectacular 42nd Street. This iconic movie musical comes to life onstage during Lyric's 2021/22 Season in a new-to-Chicago production.



Are you talking the whole night through on Zoom? This image from our upcoming 2020/21 production of Comden, Green, Freed, and Brown's Singin' in the Rain will have you saying "Good morning to you and you and you and you!"



The most beautiful sound we ever heard? Our star-studded cast singing Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim's iconic score, of course! We hope you feel pretty, witty, and bright when you use this image from our 2018/19 production of West Side Story.



Do you have a meeting coming up with King Herod, the Apostles, or coworkers? You'll look like a superstar when you use this stunning photo from our 2017/18 production of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's rock opera Jesus Christ Superstar!



While it would be loverly to be together again, with a little bit of luck, you'll be a hit at the (virtual) embassy ball with this photo from our 2016/17 production of Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe's My Fair Lady!



We're sure everyone will whistle a happy tune when they see this stunning shot from our 2015/16 production of Rodgers and Hammerstein's The King and I as your Zoom background.



June is bustin' out all over and many of us around the world are still working from home. Even though we can't gather for a real nice clambake—like in this scene from our 2014/15 production of Rodgers and Hammerstein's Carousel—virtual chats with friends, family, coworkers, and colleagues are a great reminder that we never walk alone.



It may be difficult to get friends to say "so long, farewell" when you use this beautiful shot from our 2013/14 production of Rodgers and Hammerstein's The Sound of Music as your virtual background; however, we know you can climb any mountain with the Von Trapps behind you!



Early meetings don't have you thinking "oh, what a beautiful mornin?" Don't worry—with this lively photo from our 2012/13 production of Rodgers and Hammerstein's Oklahoma, everything will be goin' your way!



Even though we're stuck at home, you can feel like you're floating down the Mississippi with Cap'n Andy and friends with this photo from our 2011/12 production of Jerome Kern and Oscar Hammerstein II's Show Boat.
