A way to keep up with Seattle theaters, concert halls, galleries, museums and other fine-arts events.

From Russia, and we loved it

The Mariinsky Orchestra performed last night to an enthralled audience in Seattle. Some were so moved, they forgot the no-clapping-between-movements rule and showed appreciation a tad early in one of the works. Who could blame? The music was superb, and Valery Gergiev provides plenty of presence. It was an emotional moment. The Benaroya audience was — a pleasant surprise — attentive and blessedly silent; no barking coughs, no dropped programs, no rifled pages. Bravo to the listeners, too.
