Greg Carroll as Bacchus, Seattle Opera 2010 by Seattle Opera published on 2013-07-03T22:35:51Z Greg Carroll as Bacchus in Seattle Opera's Young Artists Program "Ariadne auf Naxos," Spring 2010. "I am a god, created by a god; my mother perished in the flames when my father revealed himself to her. Circe’s magic was powerless against me, for I am immune. Balsam and ether flow in my veins, not mortal blood. Hear me, you who would die: I would sooner see the eternal stars perish than have you die in my arms." Brian Garman conducts the orchestra of Seattle Opera's Young Artists Program. Photo by Chris Bennion.
