    Opera plumbs the depths like no other art. We need look no further than HGO’s 2017–18 season to reinforce that point. In Verdi’s La traviata, Bellini’s Norma, and Bernstein’s West Side Story, wrenching conflicts between passion and duty drive protagonists to make the ultimate sacrifice, and smoldering revenge drives the title character of Elektra to commit murder.
