8 fun facts about Seattle Opera's 2016/17 Season:
1. This is the first season planned entirely by General Director Aidan Lang. Opera companies are constantly working several years in advance, so even though 2014 was Lang's first year at Seattle Opera, the 2014/15 and 2015/16 seasons were collaborations between Lang and former General Director Speight Jenkins.
2. More than 40 artists, including singers, conductors and creative teams will make their debuts at Seattle Opera.
