January 21 - 28, 2017

Officially the most performed opera worldwide, La Traviata is Verdi's twisting love story that explores class, reputation, and devotion, with heartbreaking consequences. Directed by Peter Kinwitchny, this gilded production stars Corinne Winters and Angel Blue in the role of the tragic Violetta.

February 3 - 12, 2017

PNB fans rejoice, as for the very first time Jean-Christophe Maillot's modernistic fairytale ballet, based on the original story by Charles Perrault is staged at the McCaw Hall. Following the Perrault version loosely, our heroine is a put-upon young girl, forced into indentured servitude by her vain stepmother and selfish stepsisters; her widower father is completely under the thrall of his new wife, and therefore doesn't help. Classical costumes make way for haute couture, and visual effects glide seamlessly in and out amidst the action.

Based on Czech playwright's Alexander Ostrovsky's play Groza (The Storm), Leos Janacek's hauntingly dark opera in three acts is a tale of passion, betrayal and loneliness. With compositions inspired by the story's Slavic roots in folk culture, the story focuses on the young, bored wife Katya, whose imposing mother in law meddles in her life to the extreme. When at last she succumbs to temptation, events unfold at a harrowing speed, with tragic consequences.

Three works including a world premiere comprise this mixed repertory program, the fourth of the PNB season at McCaw Hall. Jessica Lang arrives from the East Coast with an arresting new piece of original work, Her Door to the Sky, commissioned in 2016 especially for the Seattle-based company, first glimpsed at Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival in August. William Forsythe's New Suite is an adapted version of his work for Dresden Semperoper Ballet, composed of pas de deux, and Empire Noir by David Dawson, originally created for Dutch National Ballet in 2015.

Originally opened in 1928 as the Civic Auditorium, (later renamed Seattle Opera House) McCaw Hall is home to the Seattle Opera and Pacific Northwest Ballet. Owned by the city of Seattle, the building was rededicated to Marion Oliver McCaw, whose four sons donated $20 million to fund its first major renovation in 2003. Today a large range of events takes place at the Hall apart from the ubiquitous opera and ballet productions including concerts, comedy gigs and film premieres.
