Community Conversations

Why does opera matter today?
How is it relevant to the Kansas City Community?

Community Conversations, a new series by Lyric Opera of Kansas City, answers the question: “Why does opera matter today in Kansas City?” In collaboration with community partners and taking shape in a variety of formats, these experiences will explore the “here and now” implications of our productions and provide a path to further unlock the potential of opera.



Upcoming Community Conversations:

Community Conversation: How Shall We Live Through Tomorrow?

Sunday, November 21, 2021 | 5-6:30pm

Church of the Resurrection Downtown Administrative Center, 1522 McGee Street, Kansas City, MO 64108

“How shall we live through tomorrow?” This question, asked by Amahl’s mother in Amahl and the Night Visitors, is a very real consideration for many individuals in our community. Join a panel of community service members as we explore themes of food insecurity, homelessness, and interfaith service efforts in Kansas City. Live music from Amahl and the Night Visitors will amplify the discussion and the experience will conclude with a Q&A.

Admission is free. Masking during the event is required.
