Opera always begins with a story and LA Opera celebrates the power of the story and the joy of music through its hugely successful Opera Tales productions. Perfect for the whole family, German Opera Tales features four professional opera singers as the “opera pals” who perform musical moments from such German opera stories as Wagner’s Das Rheingold, Mozart’s The Abduction from the Seraglio and Humperdinck’s Hansel and Gretel.

A wonderful way to introduce children to opera.  A fun morning.

 Experience the glamour and romance of Verdi’s essential opera.

In the face of certain death, a beautiful courtesan dedicates her remaining days to decadent pleasures, dazzling parties and wealthy admirers. But when a devoted suitor declares his true love, she must pay for the sins of her past with a heart-breaking sacrifice. With soaring arias and passionate duets performed against an exquisitely beautiful background updated to the Art Deco era, this is quintessential Verdi: emotionally devastating and deeply, unforgettably human. Soprano Adela Zaharia, the 2017 winner of Operalia, stars as Violetta.

In Italian with projected English translations
