Create Your Own Series and Customize Your 2017/18 Experience

The upcoming season has so many reasons to subscribe – from timeless favorites like Turandot and Rigoletto, to exciting firsts like Lyric’s Orphée et Eurydice featuring The Joffrey Ballet and new productions of Die Walküre and Faust, the season has something for music lovers of every kind. 

Lyric offers more than 20 packages that are tailored to specific days of the week, plus wonderful season ticket holder benefits. Committing in advance is no longer a problem with free exchanges, plus you’ll enjoy discounts and exclusive access for events at Lyric all season long.

One of the easiest ways to become a Lyric subscriber is the Create Your Own Series– which allows you to choose the titles, dates, and seating sections that most appeal to you, and build a custom series of four or more shows. 

If you’re not sure where to begin, our Audience Services department is always happy to work with you to create an opera package that fits your tastes. Simply call 312.827.5600 to speak to one of our representatives.

Here are some of the ways that Create Your Own subscribers build their Lyric season!

KATE LOVES ROMANTIC OPERA “DATE NIGHTS” with her husband, so she chooses:

A combination of Friday and Saturday evening dates for Orphée et Eurydice, The Pearl Fishers, Turandot, I Puritani, Così fan tutte, and Faust. She writes the dates on both of their calendars so that they can plan around them and enjoy special evenings together.


2 tickets in the First Balcony to take a friend along to Rigoletto, The Pearl Fishers, and Faust.
2 Main Floor Prime seats to Turandot to take her mom for a special evening together.
She adds on an extra 2 tickets at her 10% subscriber discount for Rigoletto and looks forward to making it a group outing!


1 ticket on the Main Floor to Orphée et Eurydice and Die Walküre.
1 ticket in the First Balcony for his first production of Turandot, to enjoy a more expansive view of the stage.
And he decides to sample The Pearl Fishers and I Puritani with one ticket for each in the Upper Balcony.

JACK LOVES TAKING CLIENTS TO THE OPERA all season long, so he chooses:

Sunday matinees for every title of the season, choosing 4 box seats for each date.

Consider a package of four or more shows today, while the best seats are still available! Call Audience Services at 312.827.5600 or visit to plan your perfect opera season.
