Seattle Opera’s Young Artists Program will bring Britten’s Midsummer Night’s Dream to Bellevue from March 27 through April 5. The six performances will be at The Theatre at Meydenbauer.
The all-new, fully-staged production features Seattle Opera’s Young Artists along with a number of guest artists. The opera is set in a British boys’ boarding school — with the lovers doubling as teachers, the feuding fairy royalty and their courts as students, and the amateur actors as school handymen.
More than 600 singers auditioned for the 2008/09 season of Seattle Opera’s Young Artists Program. These singers, between the ages of 20 and 30 years old, recently completed their college training and are embarking on professional singing careers.
