Opera to Go!
The Lyric Opera Opera to Go! program, in collaboration with Country Club Bank, was created as an outreach program for retirement communities. Whether new to the opera or a long time supporter, we know that many individuals in retirement communities cannot attend an actual opera performance.
The desire to take opera into retirement communities led us to collaborate with the Lyric Opera Young Artist Program, which combines the graduate level academic training of the University of Missouri Kansas City’s Conservatory of Music and the University of Kansas Opera Program in Lawrence, Kansas, with professional training in chorus or principal roles in Lyric Opera productions. These apprentice artists appear in every main stage production.
Apprentices perform and provide opportunities for senior audiences to hear and learn about less familiar works from the opera repertoire along with old favorites and, for newer audiences, to help debunk many of opera’s myths.
