Four soloists pull on your heartstrings with evocative opera arias about love, from Violetta's selflessness in La Traviata to the fickle attentions of a seductive gypsy in Carmen. Maestro Daniel Lipton leads a full orchestra along with international artists including Luis Ledesma (baritone), Ola Rafalo (mezzo-soprano), Eduardo Gomez (tenor) and Opera Tampa favorite Elizabeth de Trejo (at left, soprano) for "L'Amour Toujours," a Popera! Concert. The shows, part of Opera Tampa's Florida Opera Festival, are 8 p.m. Friday and 2 p.m. Sunday at the David A. Straz Jr. Center for the Performing Arts in Tampa. $34.50-$84.50. (813) 229-7827.
