SACRIFICE: AN ENDURING POWER OF LA TRAVIATA

We live in a pervasive myth that if we want something or someone, we can work to get it. Yet sacrifice holds within it the give and take of life, the exchanges of energy, and the choices we make. This lecture weaves around questions of what is sacrificed, why it is sacrificed, and what this can mean at an internal, symbolic level. Using opera themes, images, and discussion – along with the work of thinkers such as Sigmund Freud, C.G. Jung, and Judith Butler – we will explore the necessary (and sometimes unnecessary) work of sacrifice.
