Midweek News – August 10


Here’s news from Seattle’s performing arts community and beyond.

Seattle Opera is presenting Rossini’s comedic opera Count Ory. It’s “sensational” and “second to nun.” Before you attend McCaw Hall yourself, meet the cast!

Last weekend, lovers of art ascended to Paul Allen’s Seattle Art Fair. It’s a big deal. The New York Times covered it, here. If you missed it, some highlights. And if you still want to see art, might we suggest Out of Sight, currently up at King Street Station?

Talking of Paul Allen, he’s put together Upstream, a music festival to mentor and celebrate Seattle-area musicians.

Summer in Seattle means going outside. Why not watch Wooden O’s Hamlet at a local park? Or watch Pacific Northwest Ballet dancers at the Seattle Art Museum’s Olympic Sculpture Park?

Finally, Pat Benatar…the Broadway musical? Rock on.
