Limelight Program/Employer Share Program
The process is easy for employees who wish to participate. Employees may call Lyric Opera’s Box Office at (816) 471-7344 to place their order and mention they work for an Employer Share partner. Employees pay a reduced rate, based on each company’s level of commitment. The company is then billed for the remaining portion of the cost.
Participating companies may also be eligible for benefits such as special ticket promotions, backstage tours or “performance teasers,” where a Lyric Opera singer can come right to your workplace.
Participating Companies Include:
- DST Systems
- Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation
- State Street
Joining the program is easy! It takes only minutes to enroll your company and we’ll do the rest. We provide all of the materials you’ll need to keep your employees up to date on every performance.
