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 are being installed throughout the house.

  • At the conclusion of this exciting new renovation project we will open with plush, state-of-the-art seats with a pleasing ergonomic design

  • New Main Floor seating configuration that provides staggered design for better sightlines that will parallel the graduated views offered on upper floors

  • Wider aisles for improved entrance and exit flow

  • Increased accessibility with more wheelchair-accessible seating
