Performance Cancellation

Pagliacci & Cavalleria rusticana Performances Canceled

Updated 6/4/2020. Given the restrictions in place, it is with deep sadness that we announce the cancelation of Pagliacci and Cavalleria rusticana, the first production of the 2020/21 season at McCaw Hall scheduled for this August. This is another deep loss for our company, our artists, and for you—our community of opera, music, and arts lovers. With rehearsals and pre-production work scheduled to start in a few short weeks, public health and government officials' decisions to allow large public events like concerts, sports, and conventions will not happen in time for us to successfully produce the first opera of the season. Therefore, we must unfortunately cancel.

YOUR Pagliacci & Cavalleria Rusticana ticketS WILL BE TRANSFERED

If you purchased tickets for this production, your tickets will be automatically transferred to our just announced August 2021 production of La bohème and this requires no action from you. If you would like to explore other options for your tickets, please contact Audience Services at tickets@seattleopera.org or 206.389.7676, Monday–Friday, 10 AM–2 PM. Pagliacci and Cavalleria rusticana will be rescheduled to a future season.


To transfer your tickets to La bohème, you do not need to do anything today.  Your tickets will automatically be transferred in 30 days.
