Green star The Tales of Hoffman: Seattle Opera

For complete schedule and showtimes, see seattleopera.org.

To create his opera, composer Jacques Offenbach wove together stories by E.T.A. Hoffmann and set the German writer in a pub to deliver them—keeping in mind that he prefers to speak (sing) in French. Seattle Opera's website says, "Long Story Short: Eccentric writer tells the stories of his three great failed romances while screwing up the fourth. But at least he has his art." This staging was popular in 2005 and promises to close the company's 50th season on a high note. Tenor William Burden sings Hoffmann, the three beautiful women will all be portrayed by French soprano Norah Amsellem, and mezzo-soprano Kate Lindsey, winner of Seattle Opera's 2010 Artist of the Year Award for creating the title role in Amelia, sings her critically acclaimed Muse/Nicklausse (a role that's both goddess and teenage boy).

Giselle

Thurs-Fri at 7:30 pm, Sat at 2 and 7:30 pm, Sun at 1 pm. Through June 8.
PNB closes its season with this French romantic ballet from 1841. It tells the story of a woman who literally dies of a broken heart after learning that the man she adores doesn't adore her. Her afterlife is colored by all sorts of love-related supernatural antics. Peter Boal’s "radiant reconstruction" is complemented with new design by Jérôme Kaplan.
