The unique richness of Kansas City’s arts scene is part of the reason that our region is growing. The arts employ thousands and help make Kansas City such a rewarding place to live, work, and invest in.

A cornerstone of KC’s performing arts offerings, Lyric Opera of Kansas City presents superb productions of classics and contemporary works that tell our stories and demonstrate the continuing vitality of the art form.
