Lyric's world class productions are a major element in the City of Chicago’s standing as a world center for the performing arts, which in turn attracts new residents, invigorates tourism, and energizes economic development. Lyric presents grand operas, musicals, and one-night-only concerts of the highest international caliber, a capability in which direct production costs are underwritten by Production Sponsors. They provide the vital financial support for our entire range of work, including world and company premieres and new productions of classic and contemporary masterworks.
Production Sponsors include corporations, foundations and trusts, and individuals. Exclusive sponsorships of a production are available, but often a consortium of cosponsors is established to underwrite a production. In turn, the Sponsors enjoy enormous satisfaction and the opportunity for recognition as well. The opening night festivities around a production, with a dinner hosted by the Lyric’s General Director beforehand, the excitement of the production itself, and the private cast party thereafter create lasting memories for a Sponsor and friends, family, and clients.
