If you’re pining for a fix of melodrama, look no further! Il Trovatore has it all – love, lust, murder and more. Pretty Little Liars has got nothing on this. This opera follows the story of the royal di Luna family in 15th century Spain, whose youngest child falls ill. Blaming a local gypsy for his child’s sudden illness, the Count di Luna sentences her to death on charges of witchcraft. As she is burned at the stake, the woman begs her daughter, Azucena, to avenge her. The young gypsy agrees, and kidnaps one of the children of the Count, raising him as her own. He grows up not knowing his true identity, and eventually falls in love with the beautiful Leonora – who is also being pursued by his biological brother! Gasp! Think of it as one of your grandma’s soap operas. With much more music.
Opera-lovers, Italophiles, and drama queens alike will be bewitched by Guiseppe Verdi’s libretto and score. Depending on your choice of seat, tickets are $20 – $249, and can be purchased here. The show is set to run from October 27 – November 29. Running time for the show is 2 hours and 45 minutes.
The society that we live in today is so focused on beauty and self-image that it can sometimes be hard for us to feel like we can measure up to the celebrities and models that are commonly associated as the definition of what “beauty” is. The play For the Diva in You aims to help take away that feeling of self-consciousness and help make people feel comfortable in their own skin. The production will also take you on an in-depth journey that examines insecurities over image, depression, and unhealthy relationships. The play includes various monologues and songs which aim to empower the audience to examine their own inner D.I.V.A.
Showtimes for this event are: Sunday, October 26 at 7:30 PM and Monday, October 27 at 7:30 PM.
