Do not park at Benaroya. It takes a long time to leave at the end of the show. Park at the Art Museum, half a block away. And it is less expensive.

Plan extra time for getting around downtown. Parking is available in the building for moderate price. Elevator takes you right inside, so you don't have to go outside in the rain.

Beyond the Score: Debussy’s La mer

Michael Francis, conductor

Lawrence Albert, actor

John Patrick Lowrie, actor

Steve Reeder, narrator

Hear the waves crash and the wind whirl in Debussy’s impressionistic postcard of the Mediterranean. New to Seattle this season, Beyond the Score takes an in-depth look at the classics of the repertoire. On the first half of the program, narrator Steve Reeder, local actors, Seattle Symphony and a big-screen presentation explore the history of a great masterwork. Then, after intermission, your concert experience comes full circle when the Orchestra performs the work in its entirety.

Created by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.
