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 Wagner's "The Flying Dutchman."

The information says:
Join us for an entertaining preview lecture on Seattle Opera’s upcoming production of Wagner’s stirring fable which recounts the stormy romance between a supernatural sea captain and a young woman obsessed with his legend.
The Seattle Opera website says:
More than 125 artists from the Seattle Opera Chorus and Seattle Symphony Orchestra perform alongside the principal singers in this movie-length production. Wagner's sweeping orchestrations, reminiscent of a blockbuster film score, evoke the power of the sea.
The show runs from May 7-21 at the Seattle Opera.  For more information about the show go here and here for more information about the library vent
