Ask someone what their favorite opera is and they're likely to respond with Verdi's La Traviata, and for good reason! Verdi's opera is beautiful, gut-wrenching, and relatable, with an interesting story and complex characters. His score is full of some of the most beautiful and recognizable music in the operatic repertoire. And although Knoxville's opera fans may be familiar with Verdi's opera, they will not be familiar with Marble City Opera's unique presentation of it, which will take place at Historic Westwood, a home in the Sequoyah Hills area of Knoxville. Westwood will serve as the opera's set and audience members will be active participants of the story, playing the "role" of party guests. Thankfully, there's no cause for stage fright because clear instructions will be provided (in English) by the singers.
Performances are March 16, 17, and 18th at 7:30pm. More information is available at www.marblecityopera.com
