Attending the Opera

Area Attractions

McCaw Hall is located on the west edge of Seattle Center in Seattle’s Uptown/Lower Queen Anne neighborhood.

Seattle Center is the region’s premiere gathering place, and is home to the Space Needle, Pacific Science Center (with two Imax™ movie screens), and the Experience Music Project – all of which are worth a visit. In addition to McCaw Hall, several other performance and special event venues are located on or near the Seattle Center campus, including the Seattle Children’s Theatre, INTIMAN Theatre, On The Boards, and Teatro Zinzanni.

Downtown is home to the world-famous Pike Place Market, the recently expanded Seattle Art Museum, Benaroya Hall (home of the Seattle Symphony), the architectural marvel that is the Seattle Central Library, a splendid waterfront Aquarium, and retail shopping galore.
