La Traviata
Passion that knows no boundaries.

When the glamorous but fragile courtesan Violetta Valéry and her admirer Alfredo Germont find love, it seems nothing can keep them apart. But the rules of society and family expectations betray them, and Violetta’s fate takes a tragic turn.

Measure for Measure
Deceit and duplicity take center stage in Shakespeare’s dark satire that closes out the 2017 Cal Shakes season. Deftly mixing comedy and tragedy, director Tyne Rafaeli wrestles with questions of consent and agency over one’s body (both politic and personal) in this gritty staging of Measure for Measure.
