"La Traviata" at Clowes Hall

The Indianapolis Opera stages "La Traviata" at Clowes Memorial Hall, 4200 Sunset Avenue, Indianapolis, with performances 13 and 15 May, with music performed by the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra.

Featuring some of opera’s most loved arias and ensembles, Giuseppe Verdi’s popular "La Traviata" soars with unparalleled drama and elegance. Violetta, a Parisian courtesan with a sordid past, falls madly in love with Alfredo, only to have her hopes destroyed when Alfredo’s father intervenes. Their spellbinding reunion is never to be missed.

Of course, it's performed in Italian -- but there will be easy-to-read translations projected above the stage.
