We are thrilled to invite you to join us for another exciting season of performances. The 2023/24 Season at Lyric Opera of Chicago promises a rich assortment of magnificent operas, a special concert with Music Director Enrique Mazzola, and a one-night-only performance by Tony, Grammy, and Emmy Award-winning soprano Audra McDonald.

Lyric offers grand opera, musical theater, contemporary works, digital content, dazzling events — and much more. Experience drama and humor, triumph and tragedy, and powerful singing and acting that brings characters to life, combined with magical stagecraft and the power of the Lyric Opera Orchestra and Chorus.


There are so many ways to attend. Whether it's after work, on the weekend, or in the afternoon, we have seats that match every schedule and budget — including packages, tickets, curated series, and even discounts for groups. 


We look forward to welcoming you at the theater and helping you make the most of your experience. Lyric has onsite restaurants, unique audience programs, hotel specials, and provides accessibility services to make your experience at Lyric the best it can be.
