Songs of Summer with Shelly Traverse

Piano, Beth Tankersley | Expired: July 28, 2020

This recital is no longer available.

Traverse made her headline-grabbing Seattle Opera mainstage debut in 2018’s Beatrice & Benedict , stepping into the role of Hero at the last minute to great acclaim. The Seattle Times named Traverse as the "scene-stealer" of the performance "charm[ing] the audience with her voice and stage presence, both lovely and unaffected." She returned to McCaw Hall earlier this year as the music-loving Chan Parker in Charlie Parker’s Yardbird. A frequent contributor to the company’s Programs & Parnerships initiatives, Traverse tours Washington state in various family-friendly operatic productions.

Ms. Traverse’s recital program highlights her varied repertoire, including French and American art songs, selections by Sondheim, and beloved opera arias by Mozart and Puccini.
