Seattle Opera | The Magic Flute
DATE: Wednesday, May 3rd
TIME: 7:00 pm
LOCATION: 200 University St (map)
INFO: COLORFUL FANTASY. Mozart’s utterly unique extravaganza blends myth, magic, and a remarkable variety of wonderful music to deliver its life-affirming message: love conquers all. A handsome prince and his comical sidekick are given enchanted musical instruments and tasked with rescuing the Queen of the Night’s daughter from a mysterious group of priests. Undergoing trials of virtue, discretion, and charity, they realize that all may not be as it seems in this magical land. Award-winning costumes from the fabulous Zandra Rhodes (The Pearl Fishers) add to the many delights of one of the most fantastic entertainments ever created.
Early Music Guild | Ode to the Orchestra
DATE: Friday, May 12th
TIME: 7:30 pm
LOCATION: 200 University St (map)
INFO: Seattle Baroque Orchestra closes its season with a program that spans the late 17th century, one of the most exciting periods in music history. Tormented by war, plague, and destruction, those years yielded some of the finest
orchestral works we celebrate today. Under the direction of Alexander Weimann, SBO explores the foundation of the
Baroque chamber orchestra form with works from Corelli, Biber, and Lully as well as Georg Muffat’s concerti grossi Delirium
amoris, Dulce Somnium, and Saeculum.
Seattle Shakespeare | A Midsummer Night’s Dream
DATE: Wednesday, May 17th
TIME: 10:30 am
LOCATION: Cornish Playhouse at Seattle Center 201 Mercer St (map)
INFO: Theatrical magic and fairy antics share billing in this valentine to the stage. It's a fantastical tale of love gone kerflooey. Headliners and Divas trod the boards with Top Bananas and Hoofers. Four lovers cross spotlights with squabbling supernaturals and a bumbling rube creating backstage comic chaos. The fairy Puck sorts it out before the act gets the hook, leaving us with a show stopper that brings down the house.

Pacific Northwest Ballet | Pictures at an Exhibition
DATE: Thursday, June 8th
LOCATION: McCaw Hall: 321 Mercer Street (map)
INFO: "LA SOURCE IS BALANCHINE AT HIS MOST ELEGANT—A PERFECT APERITIF. You’ll smell the perfume in this sublime work originally created for Violette Verdy. Opus 19 is a darker work by Jerome Robbins originally created for Mikhail Baryshnikov. It is also a work I danced for most of my career, working closely with Robbins in the studio. It’s an emotional and physical marathon with enormous rewards for audience and artist alike. Our final ballet is by Alexei Ratmansky (Don Quixote, Concerto DSCH), a man as humble as he is talented. Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition is paired with Wassily Kandinsky’s vivid geometric images; the work showcases dancers as priceless masterpieces —just like this season. You won’t want to miss a bit of it." -Peter Boal
Wing Luke | Do You Know Bruce, Part III
DATE: Thursday, June 15th
TIME: 2:00 pm
LOCATION: 719 South King Street (map)

film 2001: A Space Odyssey.
