Seattle Modern Opera Company (SMOC) is a very new company in Seattle, WA. Created by one of the co-founders of OperaMuse, SMOC wants to bring opera into the modern age. By modernizing the texts and translating them into English, SMOC performs the classics in a way you’ve never seen them before! Modern opera is also one of the primary focuses of SMOC.
Ample street parking is available. Metro #5 or #44. Our house is high off the street and it's thirty steps to the front door. Attendees will be asked to make a donation (minimum $10) all of which goes to the musicians. Please bring any drinks and snacks you'd like to share.
Note: Please do not arrive early unless you have a special need and have communicated with me. Both hosts and musicians require preparation and set up time. The start time (3:00) means that is the time you should arrive, and you can expect the program will start slightly later. Thanks for your consideration.
The Telephone, by Gina Carlo Menotti. A Hand of Bridge, by Samuel Barber. Again, by Jake Heggie.
