La Traviata Jun 1 - Jun 22, 2019  
Dorothy Chandler Pavilion La Traviata
 
There's a reason that Verdi's tragic romance La Traviata is one of the most popular operas on the planet. Of course, there's the music, with exquisite arias like "Sempre libera" and the mournful "Addio del passato." Then there's the bittersweet love story of the beautiful, pleasure-loving yet frail courtesan Violetta (played by soprano Adela Zaharia), who unexpectedly finds true (and ultimately tragic) love with a younger man. But above all, what sets La Traviata in a league of its own is its humanity and its heart. It's a truly timeless tale of moral hypocrisy and selfless sacrifice, and in the character of Violetta, Verdi has given us one of opera's most fascinating heroines, a woman of boundless humanity and emotional depth. Now LA Opera brings this iconic 1853 opera to the stage -- and you can get tickets first with this exclusive pre-sale.
 
   
Indecent Jun 4 - Jul 7, 2019  
Ahmanson Theatre Indecent
 
In February 1923, audiences witnessed Broadway's first lesbian kiss at the English-language premiere of God of Vengeance, a play by Yiddish writer Sholem Asch. Days later, the NYPD Vice Squad arrested and prosecuted the entire cast on obscenity charges. Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Paula Vogel (How I Learned to Drive) turned this true story into the acclaimed Broadway production Indecent, which won Tony awards for lighting design and for direction by Rebecca Taichman. This critically adored play at L.A.'s Ahmanson Theatre confronts the challenges faced by new American immigrants as cultures clash and stoke the fires of prejudice. Don't miss this chance to experience Indecent's klezmer-inspired original score and find out why The New York Times called it "a superbly realized, remarkably powerful new play."
