Strauss’s blazing tragedy about an ancient Greek princess hell-bent on revenge comes to the Met in the final opera production by the legendary director Patrice Chéreau, who died in 2014. Esa-Pekka Salonen, who made a riveting Met debut leading Chéreau’s production of Janáček’s From the House of the Dead in 2009, returns to conduct an extraordinary cast headed by Nina Stemme as the obsessed and bloodthirsty title character. Waltraud Meier sings her first Met performances of Klytämnestra, Elektra’s mother and the object of her fury, with Adrianne Pieczonka as Elektra’s sister, Chrysothemis; Eric Owens as her exiled brother, Orest; and German tenor Burkhard Ulrich, in his Met debut, as the corrupt monarch Aegisth. Chéreau’s longtime collaborator Vincent Huguet will stage the production at the Met.

The Lincoln Theatre presents
in a special benefit performance on
Friday, May 13th at 7:30pm
Marley's Ghost returns to the Lincoln to benefit our new Sound and Hearing Project. The show kicks off our campaign for a complete upgrade to our sound system, including a digital console and speakers for clean sound and sightlines for our patrons, monitors and microphones for our perfomers, and wireless microphones for live theater, and an hearing induction loop system for the hearing impaired.
Marley’s Ghost is nothing less than a national treasure, the capable inheritor of the archetypal Americana blueprint drawn up by The Band. As the L.A. Weekly aptly put it,
“This West Coast group deftly dashes across decades of American music to create a sound that's steeped in tradition but never bogged down by traditionalism.”
A virtuoso aggregation composed of singer/multi-instrumentalists Dan Wheetman, Jon Wilcox, Mike Phelan, Ed Littleﬁeld Jr., Jerry Fletcher, and Bob Nichols, the band can sing and play anything with spot-on feel, from roots to rock, blues to bluegrass, soulful gospel to stone country, which is what they've been doing—to the ongoing delight of a fervent cult that includes many of their fellow musician—throughout their three decades as a working unit.
The band celebrates its 30th anniversary this year with the release of The Woodstock Sessions, helmed by Grammy-winning producer Larry Campbell. Known for his artful work with Bob Dylan, Levon Helm, and countless others, Campbell guides the Ghost’s dig into its garden of deep roots to uncover a host of hidden gems. Featuring its trademark multi-part harmonies and multi-instrumental skills, the band’s 11th album is a resonant road trip through America's past set ﬁrmly in the present.
“The real draw is the band itself, showcasing the kind of ensemble performances that come only from a lifetime of playing together, thriving across the decades as virtuosic, unsung heroes of country, folk, and Western swing.” – Acoustic Guitar
“…remarkable, distinctive voices…giddily eccentric eclecticism…a heady, subversive treat.”—No Depression
PNW dream folk group The Sky Colony opens the show.
While The Sky Colony's business has been steadily and organically growing since it's creation in 2012, this unique contemporary folk group of young veteran players is whole-heartedly focused on what matters most: the music, and more importantly what's behind it. Intricately and harmonically conveying lyrical subject matter including dreams, travel, and psychedelia, all four members treat their collective rehearsal space as spiritual ground.
This concert is a benefit for the Lincoln Theatre’s new Sound and Hearing Project!
Reserved Seating Tickets: $25 1st section; $20 2nd section; $15 3rd section; $10 4th section plus applicable fees. Lincoln Theatre Members receive a $2 discount.

El Teatro Lincoln presenta:
Mariacahi y Bailadores
on Sunday, May 15th at 2:00pm
Mariachi Huenachi is a nationally award-winning high school band from Wenatchee that has played at Seattle Seahawks and Mariners games and shared the stage with the Grammy Award-winning Los Tigros del Norte. The group performs at the Lincoln Theatre in what promises to be a lively and inspiring show for the whole family.
Bailadores de Bronce
In 1972, a group of students at the University of Washington, led by Josefina Jaramillo Alvarez, united in a common goal to demonstrate their pride in their Mexican heritage through music and dance. They questioned the lack of a Mexican dance group at the UW. In many ways it was a product of the Civil Rights and Chicano movements.The dedication of the dancers is seen during performances in their intricate footwork and refined choreography. The richness of the culture can be seen in the beautiful costumes from the various regions of Mexico. The high energy and enthusiasm of the dancers transcends the stage and is felt by the audience at each performance. Bailadores de Bronce portrays the positive aspects of the Mexican culture in the broader community, breaking down cultural barriers and building bridges within the community.
Mariachi Mount Vernon
The Mount Vernon High School Mariachi Band, under the direction of Omar Ordonez and Jacob Scherr, will be representing our community in the day's activities. In just three years this dedicated group of students has developed into a wonderful unit. Come out and support this great local program!
Advance Festival Seating Tickets: $20 adults, $15 seniors & students, and $10 for children 12 and under.
Net proceeds from this event will be divided between the Lincoln and performers.

The Lincoln Theatre and the Rick Epting Foundation for the Arts present
Saturday, May 28th 7:30pm
Portland, Oregon roots artist Lloyd Jones has recorded six critically acclaimed albums, toured internationally, and racked up dozens of major awards and accolades. He’s a relentless road dog, hitting festival stages, Delbert’s annual Sandy Beaches Cruises (he’s been a regular on six winter cruises), and clubs all across the land to enthusiastic crowds who can’t get enough of his swampy blues, his backporch picking, his serious-as-anthrax funk, soul, roadhouse two-beats, and old-school rhythm and blues.
Jones is a master of the soulful understatement, the raw growl, and the groove. From his roots in muddy Oregon soil, he’s forged a 30-plus-year career as an impassioned singer and fierce guitar slinger, a clever and soulful songwriter, a bandleader, record producer, and an almost strident torchbearer for all that’s true and good about America’s music. Jones is his own true artist who works diligently at pushing American roots music forward.
What he does, he says, is “combine New Orleans rhythms, the simplicity of Memphis music, and the rawness of the blues, all for the 21st century. This music is not about louder and faster. It’s about time, meter, groove. I thought Muddy and Walter and those guys were pushing the envelope in their era. They were using effects, they were inventing their own sound. They were modern. I want to look at it in a contemporary way.” The gist is all the same — Lloyd Jones is the total package.
Consider this: Robert Cray sings his praises the way Sister Rosetta Tharpe sang gospel. Delbert McClinton won’t cruise the high seas without him. Clarence “Gatemouth” Brown, Joe Louis Walker and Coco Montoya saw fit to record his songs. He counts McClinton, Charlie Musselwhite, Marcia Ball, Bonnie Raitt, Tommy Castro, Jimmy Hall and other luminaries among his friends and musical cohorts, and can tell you stories that’ll curl your toes about touring with the likes of Earl King, Big Mama Thornton, Otis Clay, Etta James and scores of others.
Jones is a gifted singer, songwriter, American storyteller and energetic showman. He writes timeless music, steeped in a rich musical history that he’s learned, lived and loved over the years. “This is not a work of science,” he says. “It’s about attitude and joy that applies to all age groups. I’m addicted to this music.”
Lloyd Jones and his timeless, swampified American songwriting style is tailor-made for dancing like crazy people on a Saturday night. Jones is no poser, no youngster who copped a couple of quick blues licks and headed for the big time with a cocky swagger and a brand-new Strat. You see it in his face when he plays — the ear-to-ear grin, the soul-gripping grimace when he bites off another stinging note. You hear it in every heart-aching lyric, sung in a voice that genuinely shares with you life’s hard knocks and hard-won secrets. Many roots heavyweights, not to mention legions of CD-buying fans, sing his praises. Give him a listen, and you will too.
Advance festival seating tickets: $25 with $2 off for Lincoln Theatre and REFA members.
