La Traviata

If you missed the Met's well-received La Traviata when it was broadcast in April, the summer encore series always you to redress that error. Willy Decker's production of the Verdi classic stars Natalie Dessay as Violetta, the courtesan with a secret illness. Matthew Polenzani sings the role of Alfredo, the young man whose love for Violetta endangers the future marriage of his young sister. Can a fallen woman and a wealthy fella ever find happiness in this topsy-turvy world? The rebroadcast of La Traviata screens at 7 p.m. tonight at the AMC Esquire 7 (6706 Clayton Road, Richmond Heights; www.fathomevents.com). Tickets are $15.
