LA Opera: Verdi's THE TWO FOSCARI, July 20, 1 PM

This week it's the return of LA Opera to WRTI.  Plácido Domingo and James Conlon join forces in a new production of Verdi's masterpiece I Due Foscari. The languid canals and boisterous festivals of 15th-century Venice conceal a deadly web of secret plots and vindictive rivalries. Caught up in forces beyond their control, a father and son struggle to reclaim honor in a city that knows no mercy.

Plácido Domingo stars as a head of state, desperate to protect his son - and himself - from the ruthless enemies that surround them. Saturday, July 20, 1 to 3 pm.
