Come celebrate the Grand Opening of Seattle Opera’s new civic home! This state-of-the-art building will allow the company to expand its work with communities across Washington State, and, from 2-5 p.m. on Saturday, December 15, members of the public are invited to a free open house.

Attendees of the Grand Opening will be able to experience musical performances by Seattle Opera’s Chorus and Teen Vocal Studio as well as members of the Seattle Symphony Orchestra, observe a rehearsal of Il trovatore, learn more about the history of Seattle Opera, as well as Opera Production 101 in a fun, informative talk from Dramaturg Jonathan Dean. Participate in a Seattle Opera Sing-Along with some of Verdi’s most popular choruses, and enjoy a Costume Shop Sneak Peak and Q+A with Costume Director Susan Davis. Additionally, people can check out the space via self-guided tour.
