Opera at Cedar Lee

When: Wed., Feb. 16 2011

The Cedar Lee Theatre is Cleveland's destination for limited-release films. But did you know they show opera too? Both live simulcasts and pre-recorded shows are part of the ongoing HD opera series. Tonight, it's a pre-recorded showing of Giuseppe Verdi's classic La Traviata, as performed at the Royal Opera House in London. The opera follows Violetta Valéry, a famed Parisian courtesan, through her trials of love and terminal illness. Fun fact: The Oscar-nominated 2001 film Moulin Rouge! was based on La Traviata. Tonight's show starts at 7 p.m. and will be repeated on February 27. Tickets are $20 and can be ordered online at clevelandcinemas.com or snagged at the box office. For more information, call 440-528-8224. The Cedar Lee Theatre is at 2163 Lee Rd. in Cleveland Heights. — Delaney
