For younger Seattleites who enjoy live performance, Seattle Opera’s BRAVO! club deserves a round of applause. Here’s why:
Joining BRAVO! gives you a chance to connect with other young professionals between the ages of 21 and 39 in the Seattle area who are passionate about the arts and live performance. Get to know other arts-lovers, see people you know at performances and enjoy networking opportunities with others who are excited about opera.
One place you’ll interact with other the BRAVO! community is in the special BRAVO! lounge during performance intermissions. Enjoy free wine, champagne, tea and coffee and while you compare opinions with other BRAVO! members at some of the season’s best shows. And speaking of the shows, being in BRAVO! means serious
It’s true that buying tickets to epic live performances like operas can get epically expensive, but Seattle Opera’s BRAVO! program has made it far more affordable. With up to a 50% discount on tickets for members, BRAVO! slashes costs so you can make a habit of seeing the shows that interest you.
BRAVO! members enjoy invites to exclusive events and parties throughout the year, like a season kickoff party and a Laser Opera show. With plenty of food, drinks and opportunities to mingle, these events are a fresh and fun way to make new friends.
The best part of any arts group should be the arts themselves, and Seattle Opera doesn’t disappoint with its lineup for the 2017 / 2018 season. The roster includes Puccini’s heartbreaking “Madame Butterfly,” Rossini’s hilarious “The Barber of Seville,” and Verdi’s epic “Aida” – all with new-to-Seattle sets and costumes.
All three shows are well-loved by opera fans around the world and present a great entry point for those newer to the art. Best of all, every show at Seattle Opera has English captions throughout to help you follow along and Pre-Performance Talks to shed additional light on the story and nuances of the opera. You can also look through a multi-media Spotlight Guide for a simple synopsis.
