Songs of Summer and more!

"Songs of Summer" brings beloved singers to a new stage—your phone, tablet, or computer screen. This recital series includes a variety of performances from some of your favorite singers including Will Liverman, Mary Elizabeth Williams, and more. See below for the first few performances and check back for more recitals as we are able to schedule them.  

Today we are living through a significant moment in the fight for racial justice—a fight that touches all areas of society, including the arts. We are highlighting partner organizations making an impact in our communities as a part of Songs of Summer. Check out the individual recital pages for more information.

All recitals will be available to stream on Seattle Opera’s website, Facebook, and YouTube for two weeks from the premiere date.
