This class is at capacity, but if you would like to be included on a waitlist please email tickets@seattleopera.org. In an eight-week online creative writing course, we will listen to lots of opera and dive into what is involved in writing an opera libretto. Combining drama, poetry, and music, libretto-writing is a fascinating art form and the essential first spark in the creation process of an opera.
