Beatrice and Benedict are both firmly committed to being single. And the idea that they might fall in love with one another? Laughable! Until, by “chance,” Benedict overhears a friend say that Beatrice really loves him. Beatrice hears a rumor that Benedict feels the same. The seed planted, love blooms wild. Berlioz puts music to the logic-defying, wholly intoxicating experience of falling in love.
“The creative combination of Seattle Symphony Orchestra Maestro Ludovic Morlot and ACT Theatre Artistic Director John Langs will bring a freshness to Berlioz’s unique opera.” —Aidan Lang, Seattle Opera General Director
