When and Where?

What is a simulcast anyway?

Seattle Opera has a performance of Madama Butterfly in McCaw Hall at the same time as this event. Seven cameras will be positioned around the stage. This live video feed will be projected on a huge 50' x 80' screen (with HD surround sound) in KeyArena, where 8,000 lucky attendees will watch for FREE.

When can I arrive?

All ticket holders will get priority seating between 6:00-6:30 p.m. on Saturday, May 5. You may enter KeyArena through either the East or West doors. Starting at 6:30, any remaining seats will be available to customers who do not have tickets. Be sure to arrive before 6:30 to get the best seats. All seats are general admission.

What do I do before 7:30?

Once inside KeyArena, there will be plenty of activities to keep you busy, including video programming about Seattle Opera as well as lobby activities where you can learn more about opera. Plus all the usual KeyArena concessions will be available.
