Larger-Than-Life Opportunity: Join the Trojans Circle

A larger-than-life story of duty, loyalty, love, and destiny: THIS is Les Troyens.  Your larger-than-life opportunity: joining Lyric Opera's Trojans Circle.

French-Romantic composer Hector Berlioz's visionary masterwork Les Troyens is as epic as the poem that inspired it and the themes that drive the story. It requires years of planning, hundreds of hours of rehearsals, more than 225 performers, and a virtual army of technical and creative staff to present this monumental piece. Staging an opera like this is a historic experience for Lyric — from the sheer scale of the production to Sir Andrew Davis conducting it for the very first time here at Lyric and the stellar cast taking on these career-defining roles.

Operas of epic scale like Les Troyens need epic supporters — and you have an opportunity to be part of this extraordinary moment in Lyric's history by joining our Trojans Circle. In addition to helping us present this once-in-a-lifetime production, membership in the Trojans Circle will enhance your opera-going experience. Trojans Circle donors will have exclusive access to special events that will be closed to the public — including the final dress rehearsal on November 9, as well as opportunities to learn more from members of our cast and crew about the process behind creating this powerful production.

In addition to the special recognition donors will receive, joining the Trojans Circle will give you particular satisfaction in knowing that your investment is helping to make this epic endeavor possible.
