“The Best in Opera”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

I am not a season ticket holder. Why, you may ask? I am very uncomfortable in the older seats in this opera house. If there is a production or singer I cannot miss I will buy a single ticket, but intermission is quite necessary to get the circulation flowing. Oh well.

“Too many things done on the cheap”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

Productions have become increasingly cheap-looking. Broadway musicals added to the repertoire in recent years, presumably in an attempt to fill seats. We're letting our subscription go for a few years, to see if things get any better.

“Music's Best Show”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

As a regular subscriber, one can only attempt to describe the perfection associated with each performance. The precision sound of the orchestra is worth the ticket price. Singers, chorus,
and staging complete the magnificence of a Lyric production. Not to be missed while in Çhicago.

“World Class!”
Reviewed July 18, 2012

Lyric is a high caliber, world class opera company located in downtown Chicago. We have been patrons and subscribers for years. Their performances are outstanding, and because they have the best of reputations, they can draw some of the world's best operatic tallent.
