Cheapskates Guide to The Opera: BOGO for this Friday's "La traviata"


If you haven't made it over to the Winspear to see "La traviata," your thrifty ways are about to pay off. Hear Greek soprano Myrtò Papatanasiu sing herself to death beautifully in the role Violetta this Friday night, and your date's ticket will be half-price. Just enter the promo code: Violetta, when you make your purchase, then sit back and bask. Your companion never has to know.

This production of Verdi's classic love-torn opera is the soprano's American debut, and she carries the performance in her role as an unmarried and hard-partying woman, touched by tuberculosis. Who knew those last gasps with TB would be so soaring? This is the show's final weekend, so act quickly.
