Youth Opera Council

Youth Opera Council


Lyric Unlimited’s Youth Opera Council is a group of Chicagoland high school students with a passion for opera and the performing arts. They meet regularly at the Civic Opera House, where members deepen their knowledge of opera through up-close experiences with Lyric staff, artists, and the day-to-day workings of the company. The Council also creates and hosts events and activities aimed at teen audiences.

Youth Opera Council
 is supported by Terry J. Medhurst, Penelope and Robert Steiner, and Michael Welsh and Linda Brummer.

Lyric Unlimited was launched with major catalyst funding from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and receives major support from the Caerus Foundation, Inc.

Youth Opera Council - Lyric Opera of Chicago

Spend an evening filled with great music, drama, and Lyric's Youth Opera Council!

Join Chicago-area high school students backstage at the Civic Opera House for a free, special movie viewing of one of the greatest operas of all time, Verdi's La Traviata. Experience the classic tale of opera's ultimate party girl, Violetta. Watch this action-packed opera that follows her life, her love and (spoiler!) her tragic end.

It's a casual affair. Bring a blanket to camp out in Lyric's largest rehearsal room.
