The Consul: Pulitzer-Winning Political Opera

Posted by on Sat, Mar 1, 2014 at 8:23 AM

(McCaw Hall) This is the first time Seattle Opera has produced Gian Carlo Menotti's 1950 thriller about a political dissident on the run from secret police in an unidentified totalitarian country in Europe. It won the Pulitzer Prize for Music. The cast features soprano Marcy Stonikas (recently seen as Turandot and Leonore) and baritone Michael Todd Simpson, both former Seattle Opera Young Artists, plus mezzo-soprano Lucille Beer (this past summer's Erda in The Ring). Directed by Young Artists head Peter Kazaras and conducted by Carlo Montanaro (La Bohème).
