The 2021- 2022 season opens with the Lyric’s return to the Kauffman Center with Lyric Opera Goes to Hollywood. Famous arias and instrumental moments from Opera frequently punctuate dramatic moments in opera’s favorite movies. Featured selections from films include Pretty Woman, Mission Impossible, and Up . Then, Lyric Opera’s new Kansas City holiday tradition with Amahl and the Night Visitors featuring Paul Mesner puppets will entertain families in the Michael and Ginger Frost Production Arts Building.
Then join the Lyric as we delve into one of recent history’s compelling figures, Steve Jobs in a new Opera by composer Mason Bates and librettist Mark Campbell, The (R)evolution of Steve Jobs . This adventurous one-act Opera will bring to life a personality that has arguably had one of the most significant impacts on the personal and professional lives of everyone in the last twenty years. The 2021-22 season ends with Tosca, Puccini’s timeless masterpiece of jealousy, love, and revenge.
