Lyric Theatre celebrates a diverse musical theatre heritage, with roots in Gilbert & Sullivan and other light opera.
Since 1972, we have been honored to present more than 150 light opera and musical theatre productions, as well research and reconstruct several works previously lost to history. It is our priority to engage our local San José/ Bay Area community by:
Cultivating a welcoming, inclusive organization that gives local artists from all backgrounds opportunities to collaborate on musically complex, exquisitely designed, exciting stage productions;
Introducing new audiences to the satirical and comic operetta tradition popularized by Gilbert and Sullivan;
Providing affordable and accessible programming that our entire community can enjoy.
