Family Day at Lyric

  • Location - Lyric Opera House

This event has been postponed. In order to heed social distancing recommendations and continue to support the City of Chicago and the State of Illinois in controlling the spread of COVID-19, Lyric’s annual Family Day at Lyric event on May 16, 2020 has been cancelled.

While we’re sorry not to come together this May, we are happy to share that purchased tickets will be honored at our Family Day at Lyric event on Saturday, May 22, 2021. Your tickets will be automatically reissued to you later this summer, and we can’t wait to welcome you for a day of fun, learning, and a unique behind-the-scenes view of the magic that unfolds each season at the Lyric Opera House.

Join us for a fun-filled day of behind-the-scenes exploration of the Lyric Opera House! Lyric Unlimited and Lyric’s Guild Board of Directors are excited to host this activity filled day as a wonderful way to share your love for opera with family members of all ages. Whether you’re exploring the orchestra pit or the stage, or enjoying hands-on demonstrations of operatic stagecraft and costume try-ons, there’s something for everyone. Specifically programmed for children ages 5-10, and a great day of fun for the whole family.
