Museum of Flight No Stranger to Music

During the pandemic, the Seattle Opera turned into scheduled to provide a performance of “Flight.” The three-act opera changed into written in 1998 with the aid of composer Jonathan Dove and librettist April De Angelis and has been achieved around the world.
Here’s the story of the opera:
“An omniscient air site visitors controller watches over a departure living room bustling with relentlessly cheerful flight attendants, an excitable couple on vacation, a mysterious older woman, and a diplomat and his expectant spouse, all of whom have to spend the night to wait out a typhoon. At the coronary heart of the display is the Refugee, a character inspired via Mehran Karimi Nasseri, who lived in Charles de Gaulle Airport close to Paris for almost 18 years.”
The pandemic meant that Seattle Opera could not perform the display live. But instead of pass on the opportunity to offer it, the Seattle Opera teamed up with Seattle’s Museum of Flight and filmed the opera there.
