Ballard Library is hosting a preview concert of Seattle Opera’s upcoming production of Giuseppe Verdi’s “La Traviata” from 2 p.m. – 3 p.m. today (Wednesday, January 4).

“La Traviata” is a passionate portrait of a worldly courtesan forced by bourgeois society to give up the man of her dreams. The opera enthralls with a wide range of moods packed into a tautly-constructed story, with a musical score that elevates a timeless tale of moral hypocrisy and selfless sacrifice.

Featuring professional singers and an accompanist, this hour-long presentation will take you on a journey through the story and music of the opera.

The event is free and registration is not required.
