The event includes a private reception for 100 attendees including wine and light appetizers one hour before the performance, 6:00pm-7:30pm, and again during intermission, to allow for socializing and connecting.


La Traviata tells the story of the tragic love between the courtesan Violetta and the romantic Alfredo Germont.  Played out against the hypocrisy of upper-class fashionable society, Alfredo and Violetta’s love threatens to shame his family.  When his father directly appeals to Violetta to relinquish her one chance of happiness, Violetta submits and her act of self-sacrifice leads to her paying the ultimate price.
