lovely performance space
Tara R. Dec 9, 2012
When Baltimore’s Opera company was up and running before the economic woes following 2008’s crash, there was an amazing opera season performing at this venue. It is a gorgeous space with fantastic acoustics—that much is a given—but there is also a somewhat timeless feel to the hall inside, which is based on classical theatres but has the open-plan elegance of something more modern. I have seen ballet performances here as well, and the large stage, and the fact that it is nearly impossible to be stuck with a bad seat, make this a perfect place to watch performance.
Had my law school graduation here!

The Lyric is a great place to see concerts - especially symphonies and operas. Along with the Meyerhoff, I went on a lot of field trips here when I was a kid. I was there most recently when I graduated law school. It was fun to be in this building and walk across the stage to accept my degree, especially considering the memories I had of coming to watch symphonies here when I was younger. I've played piano since the second grade, so I developed a love for classical music at a young age, and this is a great venue in Baltimore to see live classical music or opera.
