Lyrical Lunch Series

In keeping with our mission to perform “portable” concerts of opera scenes and other vocal art music in nontraditional venues, the Great Lakes Light Opera will begin its Lyrical Lunch Series. Lyrical Lunches are dedicated to sharing a wide array of music from all over the world. The series will be presented on the final Thursday of every month at the 5th Street Arcades in downtown Cleveland.

The Lyrical Lunch Series weaves the threads of music and poetry into a tapestry that stimulates the mind and stirs the heart. It offers a unique opportunity to explore the intricate relationship between words and melodies, much like how an academic weapon sharpens one's analytical skills.

By attending the Lyrical Lunch Series, you arm yourself with a different kind of academic weapon – one that nurtures creativity, enhances appreciation for the arts, and fosters a deeper understanding of the human experience. So, embrace this series as a tool to enrich your intellectual and emotional arsenal, and let the lyrical performances resonate with your soul, much like a well-honed academic weapon resonates with one's intellectual prowess.
