Welcome to Seattle Opera's performance archive! We hope you'll visit often, both to share your memories and to check out what's new as we constantly add photos, stories, audio clips, videos, and more.
Seattle Opera’s fall production, Hansel & Gretel, was hugely popular—a hundred years ago. Nowadays, opera-goers are less likely to hear it so frequently; at Seattle Opera, Hansel & Gretel takes its place with many wonderful (or brand-new) operas that we see only occasionally. From the world premieres of Floyd’s Of Mice and Men and Hagen’s Amelia, to antique masterworks such as Gluck’s Iphigénie en Tauride or Handel’s Semele, Seattle audiences are always up for an adventure into unexplored operatic territory. Enjoy these memories of new or unusual works from the past five decades at Seattle Opera!
