Art & Science partnering with the Seattle Opera

On September 16, 2015 Fred Hutch and Seattle Opera hosted an enchanting evening showcasing the wonder and discovery of both science and music. The night was a collaboration between two world-class researchers and Seattle Opera’s own performing artist. Together, they took guests on a journey of discovery, challenge and triumph, interweaving stories of scientific endeavor with selections from Mozart’s The Magic Flute and Gaetano Donizetti's Daughter of the Regiment.

More than 250 people attended the sold out event which included complimentary hors d'oeuvres and beverages, interesting company and an exclusive opportunity to engage both your academic and artistic perspectives.
