It’s Time to Plan Your CYO (Create Your Own) Package!

In just a few short weeks you’ll be able to buy single tickets to Lyric’s exciting 2018/19 Season. Starting at 10am on Wednesday, June 27, you’ll have your best chance to cherry-pick the best available seats for the performances that you really want to experience. 

So, what’ll it be? You’ve got plenty of great choices:

  • Nine terrific operas — La bohèmeIdomeneoSiegfriedIl trovatoreCendrillonElektraLa traviataAriodanteAn American Dream
  • One thrilling musical — West Side Story
  • Two superstar sopranos — Anna Netrebko in RecitalRenée Fleming 25th Anniversary Concert

It’s like contemplating a great à la carte menu. Even if you choose thematically, you can enjoy a great variety of musical-dramatic “flavors” and styles. 

For instance...

  • Romantic treasures (La bohèmeCendrillonLa traviataWest Side Story)
  • Complicated families (IdomeneoSiegfriedIl trovatoreCendrillonElektra)
  • Love at first sight (La bohèmeSiegfriedCendrillonWest Side Story)
  • Heartbreakers (La bohèmeIl trovatoreLa traviataWest Side Story)
  • Lyric premieres (CendrillonAriodanteAn American DreamWest Side Story)

You can easily create your own combo package of performances customized to your schedule, budget, and interests. You can mix and match, or select thematically, and add in tickets to special events.

Granted, you could opt to attend just one opera, or just the musical, or just one soprano superstar...but why limit your enjoyment and exploration? Where’s the fun in that?

Single tickets for opera performances at the Lyric Opera House start at just $37/upper balcony and $69/main floor. Special children’s ticket prices of $20-50 are available for all operas at Lyric with the purchase of adult tickets (must be ordered by phone).
