Season Preview Parties

Seattle Opera presented two previews of our exciting upcoming season this week, with performances by tenor Marcus Shelton and soprano Marcy Stonikas, accompanied by Jay Rozendaal. Marcus sang "Dies Bildnis" from The Magic Flute, "Ecco ridente" from Barber of Seville, and "Fra poco a me ricovero" from Lucia di Lammermoor; Marcy sang "Or sai chi l'onore" from Don Giovanni and the Liebestod from Tristan und Isolde.

Tuesday night was Bravo! Club's season kickoff party, held at the Shilshole Bay Beach Club. Guests enjoyed the performance space, festively decked out:

...as well as a beautiful Puget Sound sunset:

The evening featured an address by Bravo! Club president Andrea Bettger:

Several attendees, including Erwin Park, got to meet Seattle Opera's brand-new Director of Education, Sue Elliott:

...and after the singing Steve Hilbert and friend, among others, had a good time on the dance floor:


Wednesday night's new subscriber benefit and public preview was held at City Hall, where City Councilmember Sally Bagshaw graciously welcomed attendees:

I love the stark difference between the BRAVO preview and the subscriber one...I wonder which one was more fun? :)
