Mission Statement

City Lyric Opera provides a one-of-a-kind experience for audience members by welcoming them to the operatic art form without judgment, expectation, or financial burden.

Positioning Statement

City Lyric Opera was created to redefine the way opera is perceived and produced. We put the artist first because we believe that a welcoming and collaborative environment enables them to give a better, more genuine experience to audience members. Enthusiasm and creativity are infectious and we want everyone to be able to enjoy the opera. We produce high-quality art at affordable prices to ensure a welcoming and diverse experience both on and offstage.
