Women's History Month kicks off with "Norma" and "La Traviata". La Traviata is one of my favorite operas! If you have not watched my show Operaluscious, the third episode features one of my favorite writers Paola Bassanesa who creates an amazing brunch dessert recipe inspired by the opera!

La Traviata: The title role of the “fallen woman” has captured the imaginations of audiences and performers alike with its inexhaustible vocal and dramatic possibilities—and challenges. Violetta is considered a pinnacle of the soprano repertoire.
Norma: Examines an ageless and archetypal situation: A powerful woman compromises her ideals for love, only to find herself betrayed by her lover. But equally gripping is her relationship with the younger woman who is the new object of her former lover’s attention and in whom Norma sees both a rival and a second self.
Lohengrin: It is a Romantic-era reimagining of a persistent Medieval legend about a mystical knight who champions a persecuted maiden on the sole condition that she never ask his name and the issues at stake range from the spiritual (the role of the divine in human lives) to the political (nation-building in times of transition and migration) to the deeply personal (the centrality of mystery in erotic attraction).
Falstaff: The story is an amalgamation of scenes from Shakespeare, primarily drawn from the comedy The Merry Wives of Windsor. It centers on the remarkable personality of Sir John Falstaff, one of literature’s most compelling characters.
In addition to these mainstage productions, the Met Opera also offers a variety of other events, including recitals, lectures, and family-friendly performances. With so much to choose from, there's something for everyone at the Met Opera.
