Lyric Music & More: May 12

May 12, 2020

Are you singing at home? We certainly are. Nothing quite compares to the power of song to lift the spirits. So this week we bring you tenor Matthew Polenzani, a Lyric favorite and alumnus of the Ryan Opera Center, singing one of opera’s greatest melodies, "La donna è mobile" from Verdi’s Rigoletto. We dare you not to sing along! 

Once you’ve sufficiently inspired or bothered your neighbors, check out Sir Andrew Davis's snappy answers to our rapid-fire questions, see why Figaro can’t catch a break in a fun “Dr. Opera” sketch from Lyric and The Second City, take a virtual tour of the Lyric Opera House, and learn about the life of an opera prompter. 





The mission of opera is to leave the surly bonds of earth and give one a sense of the infinite.

Rufus Wainwright
