LA Opera Discusses La Traviata
Contact :Gail Tweedt    562-570-3136

On Saturday, September 13, at 2:00 PM, the El Dorado Neighborhood Library will host John Spear, an LA Opera Community Educator, who will present a multi-media program about the opera, La Traviata.

In the giddy, glitzy world of the Roaring Twenties, a naive young man falls head over heels for a glamorous party girl. Together they trade the fast life for an idyllic love nest far from the city…until an unexpected visitor threatens to tear them apart.

This presentation is free.  Light refreshments will be served and a free opera-related gift will be given out at the end of the presentation.

This program is part of the LA Opera Lecture Series, presented by LA Opera’s Community Educators, a team of trained volunteer experts.  The LA Opera Lecture Series presents insightful talks on opera’s history, literature, philosophy, and fine arts. 

El Dorado Neighborhood Library is located at 2900 Studebaker Road, Long Beach. For more information on this program or other El Dorado Library services, please call 562 570-3136. For information on other Long Beach Public Library services programs, call 562-570-7500 or visit www.lbpl.org.
