Youth Opera Council

Youth Opera Council


Lyric Unlimited’s Youth Opera Council is a group of Chicagoland high school students with a passion for opera and the performing arts. They meet regularly at the Civic Opera House, where members deepen their knowledge of opera through up-close experiences with Lyric staff, artists, and the day-to-day workings of the company. The Council also creates and hosts events and activities aimed at teen audiences.

Applications are now closed for the 2017/18 Season.

Youth Opera Council
 is supported by Terry J. Medhurst, Penelope and Robert Steiner, and Michael Welsh and Linda Brummer.

Lyric Unlimited was launched with major catalyst funding from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and receives major support from the Caerus Foundation, Inc.

Members of the Youth Opera Council invite you to enjoy a fantastical night of opera.

Join fellow Chicago area high school students for a lively reception, with music and food, before the performance.
