Community Previews

community previews 2016/2017 season

Starting this September with Hansel and Gretel, our new format of opera previews feature professional singers and an accompanist in an hour long presentation that takes the audience on a journey through the story and music of the upcoming mainstage opera. Get an inside look into the production as you discover and deepen your personal connection to and enjoyment of the opera. 

If you'd like to bring a community preview to your neighborhood, contact Education, education@seattleopera.org

In this romantic tragedy overflowing with immediately accessible, powerfully original music inspired by Slavic folk songs, the celebrated Czech composer Leoš Janáček weaves a dreamlike, visceral story of isolation and provincial oppression. Join Seattle Opera at your local library or community center for an hour-long presentation that features professional singers.
