La Traviata  
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.

Othello  
A Noise Within Othello
 
As part of their 2018-2019 theme "Let Me In," about the deeply human need to be understood for who we are, Pasadena’s A Noise Within theater company presents Othello. Arguably Shakespeare’s most intimate of family tragedies, it’s the tale of the breakdown of a man who has everything — power, position and love — only to find his world decimated through intense mind games with his malicious ensign. Prescient in its searing social commentary of prejudice, betrayal and thwarted ambition, Shakespeare’s thunderous drama examines who we trust and the price we pay when we make the wrong choice.

Nearing the end of the Cold War, a pair of arms negotiators — a clever, cynical Russian (Alfred Molina) and an idealistic young American (Steven Weber) — meet in the woods outside Geneva to explore the obstacles their countries face on the path to peace.
