Lyric Opera Trip: La Traviata


The Classics Department will be traveling to the Chicago Lyric Opera to see Verdi's La Traviata. The trip is being organized by Professor Aldo Tagliabue in connection with his Greek and Roman Mythology course. Students in the course will explore how La Traviata can be viewed as a modern counterpart to ancient classical myths about love. For those students attending who are not part of Professor Tagliabue's course, a lecture will be offered on Wednesday, February 22 to discuss the opera's connection to classical themes.
