The Seattle Public Library will host an opera preview lecture, film screening and concert at Library locations throughout the city in July.


            Seattle Opera – 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, July 10 at the Northeast Branch, 6801 35th Ave. N.E., 206-684-7539. Join Theodore Deacon for an entertaining preview lecture of "Rigoletto." Verdi runs his audience through an emotional gamut in true operatic fashion with a tense and brutal tale of a megalomaniac’s bitter minion caught in a web of lechery, betrayal and revenge.

            Harry and the Potters – 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Friday, July 19 at the Central Library, 1000 Fourth Ave., Level 1, Microsoft Auditorium, 206-386-4636. Join us for a free, all-ages rock concert with wizard rock legends Harry and the Potters!

            Movies at Central 2:30 p.m. to 4:15 p.m. Tuesday, July 30 at the Central Library, 1000 Fourth Ave., Level 4, Howard S. Wright Family & Janet W. Ketcham Meeting Room 2, 206-386-4636. The Central Library presents a screening of the film "Dina - A Real Life Unconventional Romantic Comedy." In the 2017 Sundance and IDA award-winning film, Dina, an eccentric and outspoken 49-year-old in suburban Philadelphia, invites her fiance Scott, a Walmart door greeter, to move in with her. Having grown up neurologically diverse in a world blind to the value of their experience, the two are head-over-heels for one another, but shacking up poses a new challenge.


The Library brings people, information and ideas together to enrich lives and build community. We support universal access to information and ideas, and form strong partnerships with community organizations to offer art that is accessible to all.
