Lyric Unlimited - Lyric Opera of Chicago

Lyric Unlimited, a new initiative of Lyric Opera of Chicago, offers a multifaceted program of expanded community engagement and artistic initiatives and includes Lyric's longstanding education programs.

Lyric Unlimited

Announced in 2012, Lyric Unlimited is a long-term, evolving initiative that encompasses company activities outside of Lyric’s mainstage season. It was established to provide a relevant cultural service to communities throughout the Chicagoland area, including communities for whom opera and opera companies have been largely irrelevant; to explore a wide range of ways in which Lyric can collaborate with cultural and community organizations throughout the area; and to advance the development of opera, exploring ways in which opera as an art form can resonate more powerfully, and in a range of different ways, with people of multiple backgrounds, ethnicities, and interests.
