Enjoy Free Talks Before Every Opera Performance

Join us in the theater one hour before your opera performance for a free, 30-minute preview talk discussing that day’s production. Hosted by an opera expert, you have the unique opportunity to learn about the historical context of the opera, the music that makes it a classic, and the creators behind each masterpiece. Be among the first to hear facts exclusive to Lyric productions. Enhance your opera-going experience and mingle with your fellow operagoers!

Pre-opera talks are offered before every opera performance and take place on the main floor of the Ardis Krainik Theatre.

Seating is unreserved, and a ticket for that day’s performance is required. Talks begin one hour before each performance. Doors open approximately 15 minutes before the start of the talks.

There are no pre-opera lectures for special events or musical performances.


 Pre-Opera Talks are supported by Raynette and Ned Boshell.
