Ravel's Magical Opera

Masterworks >

Ravel’s Magical Opera is anything but child’s play. A sharp-edged, whimsical opera about a naughty child and his toys who come alive to harangue their young tormentor. The performance is enhanced with set design by Anne Patterson and light design by Jeff Lincoln, allowing every shimmering detail in the score to come alive when Ludovic Morlot conducts the Seattle Symphony in music by fellow Frenchman, Maurice Ravel. Spotlighting vocal soloists, chorus and a full symphony orchestra, L’enfant et les sortilèges presents Ravel at his most incisive and revealing. For the ultimate immersion in Ravel’s fanciful world of sound, don’t miss this rarely performed production by the Seattle Symphony.

Ligeti's monolithic Requiem goes beyond this world, as proven by its iconic appearance in the film 2001: A Space Odyssey, the perfect warm up for the full theatrical presentation on June 30 & July 1.
