La traviata

By GIUSEPPE VERDI

The hottest party girl in town is hiding a terrible secret. The love that could save her life is threatened by the demands of a furious father who insists on a devastating sacrifice. From the defiant strains of “Sempre libera” to the sobbing violins of “Addio del passato,” Alexander Dumas fils’ semi-autobiographical story and Giuseppe Verdi’s timeless score will alternately lift your spirits and break your heart.

Sung in Italian with projected translations in English and Spanish.

Pagliacci

I pagliacci

By RUGGIERO LEONCAVALLO

Canio’s not clowning around. When he catches his beautiful wife Nedda with her lover Silvio, only the start of the troupe’s performance can stay his hand … but not for long. Leoncavallo’s gritty and gorgeous score culminates in one of the most famous and tragic tenor arias of all time: “Vesti la giubba,” the original “Tears of a Clown.”

Sung in Italian with projected translations in English and Spanish.

La bohème

La bohème

By GIACOMO PUCCINI

They’re starving for everything but love. Rodolfo loves Mimì, Marcello loves Musetta, Colline loves philosophy, Schaunard loves music, and they all love their eccentric Bohemian life in the garrets of Paris’ 19th century Latin Quarter. Starving artists all, this crazy cadre of  young friends and lovers live, love, make art, and make their marks as Puccini’s divinely romantic score memorably illustrates the joys, struggles, loves, quarrels, triumphs, and tragedies of the true vie de bohème.

Sung in Italian with projected translations in English and Spanish.
