Escape on a tear-filled Parisian adventure on July 8
From an overabundance of macarons to its world-renowned architecture, Paris is the stuff of many dreams and the inspirer of much wanderlust. Unfortunately, those fantasies come with a pretty hefty price tag. If you’re craving an Parisian adventure, but the purse strings won’t budge, look no further than Chattanooga’s own Majestic 12.
“La Traviata” is coming to the Scenic City for one night and one night only. The Majestic 12 will show Verdi’s romantic tragedy on Wednesday, July 8 at 7 p.m. Skip another night in with Nicholas Sparks, and come watch as Alfredo the upper-class good guy, risks his good name for Violetta, the 19th-century call girl. Produced by Willy Decker, with Met Principal Conductor Fabio Luisi conducting, this timeless tale promises more tears than even Sparks can conjure, with a taste of Paris to boot.
You may have to try a little harder to find macarons after the show, and you won’t be greeted by the Eiffel Tower when you step onto the street, but this trip will only cost you $12.50. (That’s approximately 100 times less than a plane ticket to the real Paris will cost you, if you’re doing the math.)
