EMP (Experience Music Project)
325 5th Ave. N. [ Lower Queen Anne ] | ph: (206) 770-2700

Another example of Microsoft millionaire Paul Allen's hip and quirky sense of philanthropy, the Experience Music Project is a tribute to rock 'n' roll like no other. Designed by renowned architect Frank Gehry, who garnered inspiration for the monolith by examining and cutting up electric guitars, the controversial building houses a collection of Hendrix memorabilia that would turn the Hard Rock Café

green with envy. But that's just the beginning.The operative words in the museum's name are "Experience Music" and that's exactly what Paul Allen wants visitors to do. With Mtv-esque performance spaces, a Sound Lab where visitors can jam on provided instruments and play with music technology, and computer assisted tours, The Experience Music Project is truly a museum that knows how to use multi-media to the fullest extent. In addition to the tech savvy displays, the museum runs a full schedule of music-related films, live performances, workshops, and panel discussions that are open to the public.

Opened in 1928 as a vaudeville and silent film venue, The Paramount was once one of the most popular stops on the vaudeville circuit.

The Paramount now hosts such diverse performances as Broadway plays, touring dance companies, jazz concerts, and Sesame Street Live. And, in staying true to its past, The Paramount hosts silent films (accompanied by the original Publix organ) on Monday evenings.

The Paramount's sister theater, The Moore, was built in 1907 and is the oldest remaining theater in Seattle. Smaller than the Paramount, The Moore hosts Off Broadway shows, contemporary works, and touring bands.
Seattle Opera
Currently Relocating | ph: (206) 389-7676 or (800) 426-1619
One of the leading Wagnerian opera houses in North America, the Seattle Opera crystallized its reputation in 1975 when it was the only opera house in the nation to complete the four-opera Ring Cycle, since the Metropolitan Opera did it is 1939. Innovative and willing to take on challenges, the Seattle Opera has consistently had the highest per-capita opera attendance in the nation since the 1960s, partially due to its dedication to wooing new audiences. The opera's Adult Education Lectures, performance introductions, and post-show question and answer sessions - in combination with top-notch performances -- have kept so many Seattlelites engaged and interested in the art form that a bigger opera house is currently in the works.
