She’s No Shrinking Violetta

Masochistic opera lovers veer toward the impenetrable works of Wagner. Regression-prone classical enthusiasts seek out Mozart’s trippy-ass stage productions. People who just love great opera go for Verdi. The Italian king of the craft couldn’t make a flop and in his catalog of famous works, his 1853 La Traviata still manages to stand out. You know those arias, even if you don’t have them set to memory. La Traviata has become part of the collective conscious. Milan’s world famous opera house, Teatro alla Scala, put together a brand new production starring one of the world’s most celebrated Violettas, heart-melting soprano Diana Damrau. The Angelika (5321 E. Mockingbird Lane) shows the thing twice, once at 2 p.m. Sunday, and again at 7 p.m. Tuesday. See it the best way possible: with popcorn. Tickets cost $20. Visit
Sun., Jan. 5, 2 p.m.; Tue., Jan. 7, 7 p.m., 2014
