Lawn tickets: Sold out
Up to two children 6 & under are free with the purchase of an adult ticket*.
In celebration of our community and our return to in-person performances we invite you to join us for a spectacular outdoor event: our Welcome Back Concert of Die Walküre. The music of Richard Wagner's iconic opera will fill the Seattle Center campus from the Fisher Pavilion Lawn to the International Fountain and includes jumbo screens for all to enjoy. This abridged version of Die Walküre will feature more than two hours of Wagner’s incredible music kicking off with the ever-popular and blood-stirring “The Ride of the Valkyries.”
In this concert version of the opera, audiences will be treated to an internationally-renowned cast of Wagnerian stars. Two-time Grammy Award winner Eric Owens, "an American marvel," (Chicago Sun-Times) makes his Seattle Opera debut along with the "dramatically fearless" (The New York Times) tenor Brandon Jovanovich. Plus we are excited to welcome back Washington native and Richard Tucker Award winner Angela Meade, our spectacular Tosca soprano Alexandra LoBianco, and lauded bass Raymond Aceto. Wagner's larger-than-life masterpiece is brought to life by members of the Seattle Symphony Orchestra and conducted by former Music Director Ludovic Morlot.
This event will go on rain or shine.
*For every two children under 6 there must be one adult ticket purchased. Once the concert starts we kindly ask children stay seated with their group for the entirety of the concert.
Service animals always welcome at Seattle Opera. Pets are not allowed.
