Welcome to Seattle Center
Love, laughs, and liquor. Utterly enjoyable from first sip to last, this fizzy concoction is opera’s most winning comedy. A lovestruck bumpkin is about to lose the company of a rich and independent landowner. Crossing paths with a quack doctor, he soon gets duped in more ways than one. Wine, a windfall, and a fateful “furtive tear” eventually reveal happy truths as sincerity triumphs amid much rejoicing.
After a film production in 2020, this colorful comedy returns to McCaw Hall in a new-to-Seattle production that has everything: winking humor, relatable human characters, and a charming love story—all set to ravishing bel canto music that makes the soul sing.
