Seattle Opera Preview Of "Ariadne auf Naxos” Tomorrow Night At NE Branch Library

Seattle Opera Preview Lecture

The Northeast branch of the Seattle Public Library (6801 35th Avenue NE) is having a free preview lecture tonight at 6:30pm of Seattle Opera’s upcoming production of Strauss' “Ariadne auf Naxos.”

The information says::
Join us for a preview lecture of Richard Strauss’ comedy where a wealthy patron commissions two pieces of entertainment for a private dinner party: an opera based on the myth of Ariadne in exile, and a capering troupe of clowns for comic relief. The catch: the two acts must perform simultaneously so a fabulous pyrotechnics display can conclude the evening as promised.
Seattle Opera’s acclaimed production delivers a deliciously theatrical mix of lowbrow comedy and high art, offering surprises and delights at every turn.
