Family, Music

When salmon fail to return to the sea one spring, animals such as Orca, Heron, and Turtle—and a greedy fisherman—embark on a journey upriver to find the missing fish. Heron and The Salmon Girl is part of a trilogy of new operas from librettist Irene Keliher and composer Eric Banks that explore stories of a Pacific Northwest river, including marine life, freshwater ecosystems, and forests— sure to entertain and inspire children and adults alike. This performance features the Seattle Youth Symphony and Seattle Opera soloists and Youth Chorus, conducted by Stephen Rogers Radcliffe. Presented by Seattle Opera and Seattle Youth Symphony Orchestra.
Advance tickets are $20/ $10 youth under 18 and seniors, at and at the Seattle Opera ticket office, 1020 John St. Great Hall; enter on Eighth Avenue.
