LA Opera at the El Dorado Neighborhood Library
LA Opera will present an Opera Talk on
The Two Foscari at the El Dorado Library Saturday, August 11, 2012 at 2 PM.  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.  The opera in three acts by Giuseppe Verdi based on the historical play The Two Foscari by Lord Byron.
