Join us in the Steinhart Room 30 minutes before most Lied main stage events for a presentation by a guest speaker. The Lied Center invites a member of the company or an expert from the community to give background and context to the performance you are about to see. Many patrons report that hearing the pre-performance talk enhanced their enjoyment of the show. Pre-talks are 15-20 minutes in length to leave plenty of time for patrons to get to their seats.

For more information on how you can participate as a guest speaker for the Lied Center pre-talk series for the upcoming season, please contact Sasha Dobson by phone, 402.472.3215, or email,
