Pacific Northwest Ballet | A Midsummer Night's Dream

by Felix Mendelssohn

PNB’s production of Shakespeare’s comedy charms everyone who enters its enchanted realm. Deep in a Northwest-inspired fairy kingdom, a quarrel between the King Oberon and Queen Titania sparks mayhem when mischief-maker Puck mismatches mortal lovers and causes Titania to romance donkey-headed Bottom. All’s well that ends well by Act II, which opens with Mendelssohn’s famous Wedding March and celebrates ideal love with some of Balanchine’s most beautiful choreography. Featuring the PNB Orchestra.

Seattle Symphony [untitled] 3 | Im wunderschönen Monat Mai

by Reinbert de Leeuw

Dutch composer Reinbert de Leeuw reimagines the songs of Schubert and Schumann, infusing them with rawness and danger. Written in the style of 1920s German cabaret, de Leeuw creates a vulnerable, idiosyncratic and ultimately beautiful cycle, a journey through life and tragic love, with all the emotions that accompany it.

Seattle Symphony | The Eternal Gospel by Leoš Janáček

It’s Ludovic Morlot’s final appearance as Music Director, and he is throwing a party for the ages. In Debussy’s gorgeous Nocturnes, clouds drift off, festivals flash and fade away, and the shimmering sea beckons with the seductive call of the Sirens. For Janáček, the king of Czech opera, composing the choral work The Eternal Gospel offered an outlet for timeless themes of love and peace that transcend any language or faith. Bon voyage, Ludo, and thanks for the inspiration you have brought to us all.
