Production sponsorships

Lyric's world-class productions play an important role in Chicago’s standing as an international destination for the performing arts. Your generosity as a Production Sponsor is the financial power behind Lyric’s grand operas, musicals, and one-night-only concerts of the highest caliber. Production Sponsors invest the vital fiscal resources for our entire range of work, including world and company premieres and new productions of classic and contemporary masterworks.

Production Sponsors are individuals, corporations, foundations, and trusts who champion traditional grand opera and new operatic ventures with international appeal. Sponsors are celebrated with very special opportunities to participate in the inner circle of Lyric’s life. Opening night of the production you sponsor starts with a dinner hosted by Lyric’s general director and includes an insider’s look into the opera’s intriguing plot. The excitement of the production itself follows, crowned by a private post-opera cast party. These are nights to remember and available only to Production Sponsors.
