We look forward to welcoming you back to our newly improved Ardis Krainik Theatre. Thanks to a generous gift from an anonymous donor in support of Lyric's Patron Accessibility Initiative, brand-new seats have been installed throughout the house.

  • Following the completion of this exciting renovation project, we have opened with plush, state-of-the-art seats featuring a pleasing ergonomic design

  • The Main Floor seating now boasts a staggered configuration for better sightlines, mirroring the graduated views found on the upper floors

  • Widened aisles to enhance entrance and exit flow

  • Increased accessibility with more wheelchair-accessible seating available
