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

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. 

In the 2016/17 season, more than 100,000 individuals participated in Lyric Unlimited programming.
Lyric Unlimited was launched with major catalyst funding from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and receives major support from the Caerus Foundation, Inc.
