Spring Season 2021
Soundscapes in the City, a series of short, outdoor concerts featuring Lyric Opera of Kansas City artists singing hits from opera and musical theatre, was launched last fall to great acclaim. Pack a picnic, bring a blanket and chairs, and enjoy a beautiful evening of opera and musical theatre’s greatest hits.
It’s Spring Training at the Lyric Opera! Join us as we reflect on American society and culture through the lens of our favorite pastime, baseball. This NEW PRODUCTION by Kathleen Belcher, Dan Rigazzi, and in collaboration with the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum combines songs about baseball, documentary-style narration, and quotes highlighting America’s struggle for equality and racial justice on and off the field. Just as baseball reflects America’s diversity, this production spans diverse styles – from opera to jazz, musical theatre, and popular music, making it a sure home run!
