Welcome to Seattle Opera's 50th Anniversary Site! 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.
Each season, Seattle Opera strives to present at least one work we've never heard before. From world premieres of new American operas, such as Of Mice and Men and Amelia, to little-known masterworks from the opera tradition, such as Gluck's Iphigénie en Tauride or Verdi's Attila, Seattle audiences are always up for an adventure into unexplored operatic territory. Celebrate our production of The Consul by exploring 5 decades of the new and unusual at Seattle Opera.
