Operagasmic Production of the Week!

Operagasmic Production of the Week!

by Christie Connolley

I love to arrive early to the opera.  For one, I want to sit down and see what everyone else is wearing…. the gowns, the sequins, THE SHOES!  Once that is done, I delve into the program!  I want to read the ‘who’s who, all of the singers bios, and the miniature reproductions of their glossy 8 X 10′s (which I usually go back to during intermission and estimate how many years agothat photo was taken), the director’s notes, the conductor’s notes!  It is one of the best parts of going to the opera!  So let Operagasm get you ready with the down low on new and exciting upcoming productions.

The Operagasmic Production of the Week is  Seattle Opera’s Ring Cycle!

The Ring

By Richard Wagner
Aug 4 – Aug 25, 2013

Cycle I: August 4, 5, 7, & 9
Cycle II: August 12, 13, 15 & 17
