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.
At Seattle Opera this summer we’re getting in the mood for the zany silliness of Rossini’s The Wicked Adventures of Count Ory. Although there’s nothing like crying your eyes out at a great opera tragedy, the art form of opera moves us to laughter as often as it does to tears. From Ariadne to Zauberflöte, from ridiculous farce to witty comedies of manners, comic opera entertains with disguises, drag, dummies, and delightful delirium. Our spectacular singers and gifted comics have earned plenty of smiles through the years. Enjoy these memories of opera comedies from the past five decades at Seattle Opera!
