One of the most talked-about productions in Seattle Opera history returns to McCaw Hall for a glorious season finale. An endlessly inventive poet regales his drinking buddies with stories of romancing three fantastic women. A trio of colorful villains foils our hero at every turn. Three fabulous shows in one, Jacques Offenbach’s sumptuous collage of whimsy, creativity, heartbreak, and artistic salvation enchants and delights with luminous music and compelling theater.
