Opera Lyra’s bold, new expanded season for 2015-2016


Ottawa, ON – February 18, 2015

General Director Jeep Jeffries and Interim Artistic Director Kevin Mallon proudly introduce Opera Lyra’s bold, new expanded season of classic and contemporary works for 2015-2016.

Opera Lyra’s 2015-2016 season includes two updated classic operas at the National Arts Centre (NAC) in Southam Hall and two new partnerships to bring Ottawa additional contemporary and classic productions in smaller venues. In addition, Opera Lyra’s fall show for families and students tackles bullying through song and audience participation.  This new, enhanced season includes four subscription packages and all four operas can be seen for as little as $162.  The 2015-2106 season brochure, highlight video, calendar of special events and subscription and ticket information are online at operalyra.ca.


Edwardian England, check. Romance and comedy, check. Love lost, love found, love triumphs, check!

We’ve thrown everything but the kitchen sink into our Spring 2015 presentation. This March come to the National Arts Centre and take in Opera Lyra’s re-invention of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s perennial favourite The Marriage of Figaro. You do not have to wait until March 21st to be a part of the highly anticipated show. Opera Lyra will be out and about hosting several entertaining events in anticipation of the opera.

Come out to the pub for a night on the town. Assist with a dress fitting at one of Ottawa’s local, well-established wedding shops. Maybe a “rehearsal dinner” at a lovely Ambassador’s residence..Or…

“Perhaps you would you prefer a flash mob at your favourite grocery store mi’lady?”

Get ready for a great time! Opera Lyra is coming at you in a way not seen before!
