Lyric Opera streams

All of us at Lyric Opera of Chicago can’t wait to welcome you to live performances this season! 

During the 2022/23 Season, we are excited to once again be offering on-demand streams of each of our operas as a back-up alternative to attending in person for ticketed patrons. (Please note, streams will not be offered for Fiddler on the Roof, The Brightness of Light, or West Side Story.)

If you have purchased a ticket and choose not to come to the theater, you can contact us to let us know. We’ll release your live performance ticket and move you into our virtual streaming option.

Everything you need to know to request an opera stream link instead of your live performance attendance is below. And if for any reason you do not attend a performance, we’ll automatically send you a streaming link to enjoy.

Though nothing beats the thrill of a shared live performance, we don’t want you to miss a moment of the beautiful music, thrilling theater, or beautiful stagecraft that Lyric’s season has in store for you. We look forward to sharing it together either live — or virtually!

There are two ways to take advantage of Lyric’s streaming service:

  1. Fill out this form to request a stream of your next upcoming performance.

  2. If you do not attend the theater, your ticket will not be scanned. Those with unscanned tickets will automatically be sent a link to view the opera stream on demand when the stream becomes available.

  3. Questions or concerns? Call our Audience Services team at 312.827.5600 and we’ll be happy to work with you to take your stream request.
