The Magic of Opera for the Whole Family!

From newly created operas for young audiences to a day of behind-the-scenes exploration of the Lyric Opera House, Lyric Unlimited offers gateways to storytelling for the whole family to enjoy.

Thoughts on Parenthood

Thoughts on Parenthood is an interactive arts project examining the unique experience of parenthood. With the help of activist and photographer Tonika Johnson the project will connect with communities across the city of Chicago, gathering personal stories of parents – their greatest wishes, biggest needs, and proudest moments. Getting involved is easy! Take the survey, and learn more about this incredible project.
