About Civic Opera House
The world-renowned Lyric Opera of Chicago performs in one of North America's most beautiful opera houses, the Civic Opera House, at 20 North Wacker Drive. From its opening on Nov. 4, 1929 until Lyric Opera of Chicago was founded in 1954, the Civic Opera House was home to a variety of smaller Opera Companies. Over the years the Civic Opera House has also hosted visiting opera and dance companies, as well as touring musical shows, dance, and vocal concerts. In 1993, Lyric Opera of Chicago purchased all of the theater and backstage space in the Civic Opera Building and started a massive $100-million renovation of historic space. The improvements made during this project allow Lyric Opera to continue producing world-class opera well into the 21st century.
