The Conservatory has had a long and very fruitful relationship with Lyric Opera Productions, giving students valuable professional experience through participation in Lyric Opera productions, and nurturing students in the whole process of opera production.  Selected students have the opportunity to participate in Lyric Opera productions and in associated workshops run by Lyric Opera.  Most recently, Conservatory students have taken part in Lyric Opera's productions of Le nozze di Figaro at the National Concert Hall; Aida, La Traviata and Rusalka at the Gaiety Theatre; and The Mikado at Buxton Opera House.
