What Moves You?

Which moments did you find moving during our 2017/18 Season?

Opera has a distinct way of capturing our hearts. It awakens a passion in us — setting our souls aflame through gorgeous music, gripping drama, grand settings, and stunning performances. In short, opera moves us. As one of Lyric Opera of Chicago’s avid fans, you inspire us to continue producing this magnificent art form each year. And for that, we are so grateful. 

I want to support Lyric!

Which moments did you find moving during our 2017/18 Season? Was it the enchanting grace of The Joffrey Ballet dancers in John Neumeier’s production of Orphée et Eurydice? Was it the heartwrenching betrayal that led to the poignant finale of Die Walküre? Was it Lawrence Brownlee’s and Albina Shagimuratova’s stratospheric arias in I Puritani that took your breath away? Or something else entirely?

We are so moved by the generosity of our donors. Membership donations from patrons like you are absolutely essential to our financial wellbeing as a nonprofit organization. Our membership opportunities are built to enhance and enrich your opera-going experience at Lyric. 

If this season has moved you, we hope you will consider supporting Lyric by making a contribution before our fiscal year officially ends on June 30. Here are three ways you can make your gift:

  1. Visit to give through our secure website.
  2. Contact our Development office at 312.827.3500.
  3. Send your check, made out to Lyric Opera of Chicago, to 20 N. Wacker Drive, Chicago, IL 60606.

I'm moved to donate!

Thank you for making Lyric Opera part of your life!
