Review of The Turn of the Screw at Seattle Opera. Written by TeenTix Press Corps Writer Sumeya Block and edited by Teen Editorial Staff Member Hannah Schoettmer!
Seattle Opera's newest opera, an adaptation of the book The Turn of The Screw by Henry James, will leave you forever haunted by the spirits that reside in the Bly mansion.

This past Sunday, I saw the classic Puccini opera Madame Butterfly at the Seattle Opera for the first time.
The set was a series of Japanese doors, revolving around center stage. This device was simple and effective in pulling the viewer into the scene. It was lit with many colorful lights, primarily pink, white and red, which changed to create dramatic effects for the storyline.
The orchestra, with conductor Carlo...Read more →

Recommendation from The New Guard: Teen Arts Leadership Society
Hey TeenTix members! It’s Katherine and I’m bringing you more recommendations from The New Guard, TeenTix’s Arts Leadership Society.
During April, we saw a TON of different shows and went to many events. Our favorites were Here Lies Love (which is still playing!) at Seattle Rep, The Secret Garden at 5th Ave, and Ballet on Broadway at PNB. Personally, I saw The Fog Machine Play at *new partner* Copious Love Productions (which...Read more →

Do you know Tucker Cholvin?
Maybe you do – when he was 16, Tucker discovered the wonders of the TeenTix Pass. Tucker used TeenTix to see art all over Seattle – from the Pacific Northwest Ballet, to On the Boards, to the Seattle Art Museum. In his words “you name it - I went there using TeenTix.”
Tucker also hung around TeenTix HQ all the time. He was on the Teen Steering Committee (the precursor to The New Guard) AND he...Read more →

An opera for die-hard-opera-fanatics and opera-newbies alike!
After attending Seattle Opera’s: La Traviata, I can officially say that I have been to the Opera!
As a die-hard-theater-goer, I figured it was high time I had my first operatic experience, but I was unsure of where or what to attend as a newcomer. Luckily, I had the perfect friend to phone! I immediately rang my wonderful sister- a trained singer, an opera fanatic and a Senior in the Audio Engineering Program at Evergreen...
