Soundscapes in the City
Soundscapes in the City, a series of free, short, outdoor concerts featuring Lyric Opera of Kansas City artists singing hits from opera and musical theatre, was launched in fall 2020 to great acclaim. Pack a picnic, bring a blanket and chairs, and enjoy a beautiful evening of opera and musical theatre’s greatest hits.
