Return of Ulysses Hits Seattle

It was fun this weekend to hear yet another Monteverdi opera here in Seattle (we had Monteverdi's Orfeo a few weeks ago): Il ritorno d'Ulisse in patria, the first-ever production by Seattle's newest opera company, Pacific Operaworks. A co-production with South African and Dutch partners involving puppets, opera singers, and video footage, Ulisse was an exciting kick-off for this new company. They still have a couple of performances; for more information, go to Pacific Operaworks.
