La Traviata

When: Sat., Oct. 8, 8-10:15 p.m., Tue., Oct. 11, 7-9:15 p.m., Fri., Oct. 14, 7:30-9:45 p.m. and Sun., Oct. 16, 2-4:15 p.m. 2016

Set in 19th century France, this tale of love, intrigue, money and power features performances by Pittsburgh favorite Danielle Pastin as courtesan Violetta Valery, rising opera star Cody Austin as her love Alfredo Germont, recognizable music such as the rousing “Brindisi” drinking song and edgy costume and set design. The most popular opera in the world, La traviata is the show Richard Gere took Julia Roberts to in the hit movie Pretty Woman, and it’s no wonder: The two stories have very similar plots.

Price: Tickets start at $12
