"The Consul"

Preview lectures of Seattle Opera's 'The Consul'

The Seattle Public Library will host preview lectures of Seattle Opera's upcoming production of Menotti's "The Consul" at several Library locations. Visit the calendar for specific times, dates and locations.


"The Consul" tells the story of a devoted wife and mother who clashes with the bureaucracy of a nameless police state while trying to obtain an exit visa for her persecuted family. 


The preview lectures will include recorded musical excerpts designed to enhance the enjoyment and appreciation of the production.
