Music and Libretto by Richard Wagner
In celebration of our community and our return to in-person performances, Seattle Opera roared back to life with a spectacular outdoor event. The music of Richard Wagner's iconic opera filled the Seattle Center campus from the Fisher Pavilion Lawn to the International Fountain. This abridged version of Die Walküre featured more than two hours of Wagner’s incredible music, kicking off with the ever-popular and blood-stirring “The Ride of the Valkyries.”
Lawn tickets were sold out and many more opera-lovers and passers-by enjoyed the concert for free. The sound was broadcast across the Seattle Center campus and jumbo screens were viewable from the International Fountain area.
