Lecture & Performance at the Charleston Library Society

HALO will be at the Charleston Library Society for a lecture and preview performance of our upcoming production of Verdi’s La traviata.

Opera. For y’all. It’s what Verdi and HALO have in common. Whether you’ve seen 100 operas or this is your first one, this lecture offers the inside scoop on:

  • How our production–set in 1986–tells the same story Verdi set to music in 1853
  • What to listen for in Verdi’s music that makes it so sublime
  • How to get the most out of Charleston’s cultural event of the season!

Tickets for non-members of the Charleston Library Society will be available soon.
