Lady of the Camellias

Friday February 15, 2019 • 7:30 p.m. • Kauffman Center • TBA

7:30 p.m.

Armand, a young countryman meets the ravishing courtesan Marguerite in a chance meeting that leads to a passionate, but doomed love. Val Caniparoli’s popular adaptation of this classic story is set to the romantic score by Frédéric Chopin, and deftly depicts the moving story of beauty, extravagance, jealousy, deception and heartbreak. Alexandre Dumas’ tragic love story has inspired many adaptations, including Greta Garbo’s Camille and Baz Luhrman’s Moulin Rouge!, but none more popular than Verdi’s opera La Traviata. It will be held at the Kauffman Center from Feb. 15-17 and Feb. 22-24. Friday and Saturday performances are at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday performances are at 2 p.m. Tickets are not yet on sale.
