TUKWILA, Wash. — The Museum of Flight looks a lot like a movie set these days. Seattle Opera is on location with performers and dozens of crew members to film a virtual production called 'Flight,' loosely based on a true story.

It's part of the opera's spring pay-per-view streaming lineup. Seattle Opera has had to get creative over the course of the pandemic to keep bringing the arts to their supporters with out-of-the-box ideas like this one.
