McCaw Hall, 321 Mercer Street, Seattle, WA
Surging passion, romance, heartbreak and joy soars in this opera. Friendship of young Parisian artists sing Puccini’s unmatched gift of melody and poignancy. New love for a poet, a painter, a musician and a philosopher scrape by picking up odd jobs, joking about their poverty as they pursue their arts as hope touches your heart. The poet’s lover is overcome by a serious illness and the artist is stretched thin and cannot support his love as despair lingers. Impossible to forget, this opera masterfully conveys a tune-filled romantic score. http://seattleopera.org or call 206.389.7676.
