Nurturing the Art of Excellence
Join us in the VBC Playhouse as Ars Nova, Inc proudly presents highlights from two of Verdi’s most famous operas: La Traviata and Il Trovatore. The operas are abbreviated (1 hr 15 min each) with fresh new innovations to make them more accessible to all the people – presented with spoken dialogue in English, while glorious arias are sung in Italian with supertitles. This will include the famous chorus Brindisi (La Traviata) and the Anvil Chorus (Il Trovatore). Click below or the sidebar for more information and to purchase tickets.
