Ticket Donations - Donate Your Tickets - Lyric Opera of Chicago

Donate Your Tickets


If you are unable to attend a performance, please consider making a tax-deductible donation by returning your tickets to Lyric.

ONLINE: Log in to your account and navigate to your My Upcoming Performances page to donate your tickets. Online ticket donations must be completed before curtain.

IMPORTANT: Tickets can only be donated online through the purchaser-of-record's account login. If you want to donate tickets that were purchased under someone else's account or if you do not have a login, please call to donate the tickets. Lyric Opera will send a ticket donation statement to the purchaser-of-record only; ticket donation statements cannot be issued to another individual. (Private arrangements between an individual and the purchaser-of-record are not reflected in our records.)

PHONE: Call our Audience Services Department at 312-827-5600. We can accept ticket donations by phone as late as 5 minutes before curtain.

MAIL/FAX: You may also mail or fax your ticket donations. Donations must be received at least 5 minutes before curtain. Mail to Lyric Opera of Chicago, Attn: Ticket Donation, 20 N. Wacker Drive, Suite 840, Chicago, IL 60606. Fax to (312) 332-8120.

We appreciate your donation as soon as possible to help increase our chances of re-selling the tickets. A personalized statement and tax-deductible receipt of all ticket donations will be emailed to you in January for the previous calendar year (or via mail if no email address is associated with your account).
