Lyric Opera House

Phased Improvements to a Landmark City Opera House

Mueller Associates has engineered several phases of renovation and expansion projects for the Modell Performing Arts Center at the historic Lyric Opera House. The improvements have included the integration of new mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems into the circa-1895 building, modernization of the 2,600-seat auditorium, a 20,000-square-foot backstage support addition, and the addition of an award-winning 95-foot-tall stage house designed to accommodate grand opera and major touring productions.
