Pay what you can to enjoy an afternoon of opera on the big screen.
On Sunday, Jan. 27, the Straz Center for the Performing Arts will be screening “La Traviata” in the TECO Theater at 2 p.m.
The event is “pay-what-you can” admission.
The film stars Anna Netrebko and Rolando Villazon and is the story of a lively Parisian courtesan who gives up the man she loves to save his family’s reputation. The film is sung in Italian with English subtitles.
The event is part of the festivities of the Florida Opera Festival which continues through March 10 and includes other free and reduced-price happenings.
The David A. Straz, Jr. Center for the Performing Arts is located at 1010 N Macinnes Pl., Tampa.
