Lyric Opera of Chicago

We believe in the life-changing, transformational, revelatory power of great art and opera. Lyric Opera of Chicago exists to provide a broad, deep, and relevant cultural service to the Chicago region and the nation, and to advance the development of the art form of opera by:

  • Producing and performing consistently thrilling, world-class opera, with a balanced repertoire that encompasses core classics, lesser-known masterpieces, and new works.

  • Creating a diverse, innovative, wide-ranging program of community engagement and education activities that reaches the widest possible public.

  • Developing exceptional emerging operatic talent.
