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.
