The Metropolitan Opera is bringing world-class opera to Marine Park, for free, in celebration of the 40th anniversary of "Met in the Parks."

This bit of Lincoln Center can be enjoyed locally on Aug. 25 when Giuseppe Verdi’s "La Traviata" ("The Fallen Woman") comes to life on the green.

The performance will be a concert version of the legendary story of the consumptive courtesan, Violetta (Maureen O’Flynn, left), and Alfredo (Garrett Sorenson) and the many obstacles they have to overcome for love.

Through song, you will understand Violetta’s love of freedom as she sings "Sempre libera"; feel Alfredo’s frustration when he thinks Violetta is leaving him in "Questa donna conoscete?"; and listen to Alfredo’s father’s plea for him to leave Violetta and return home with "Di Provenza."

The Marine Park performance will feature a full orchestra, but no costumes or set for a more casual operatic experience. Bring your own lawn chairs and blankets and pack a picnic for a unique night out at the opera.

The Metropolitan Opera presents "La Traviata" in Marine Park (East 33rd Street and Avenue U) on Aug. 25 at 8 pm. The performance is free and open to the public. For more information, visit the Web site or call (212) 360-6000.
