Exploring Opera: Autumn at The Met

October 9-(13), 2023 – THIS TRIP IS SOLD OUT.

Take off for a 4-night musical, educational, fun & delicious journey to enjoy autumn and opera in “the city that never sleeps.”

Autumn in NYC is always an exciting time! The performing arts are in full swing with the new season; the days are usually sunny, and the trees are turning their blazing shades of fall. Most of our activities are within just a few blocks of our hotel so, no matter the weather, a great time can be enjoyed by all!

Our short-week focuses on several aspects of opera – the performance, the preparation, and the personal. Experience some of opera’s most dramatic, passionate and romantic masterpieces, each filled with gorgeous melodies from start to finish. Two masterpieces await at The Metropolitan Opera!

Begin with the ultimate story of love and loss – Puccini’s soaring La Bohème! Next, Verdi’s thrilling Nabucco is sure to delight with its countless melodies and dramatic story.

Prepare for the performances with James Sokol’s Private Exploring Opera Lectures. Get a peek “behind the curtain” on a Metropolitan Opera Backstage Tour.

Our final evening features the unique chance to gain insights into the operatic voice, singing and vocal technique in an Exclusive Opera Workshop, followed by a fun, interesting and delicious Private Opera Dinner — an opportunity to dine with opera professionals, to learn about their day-to-d ay lives and to ask your “burning questions” – a special and personal way to end our journey!

Our time includes Sumptuous Meals, Optional Activities and More; all combine to create an interesting and unforgettable operatic experience! Join the fun!

Led by opera instructor and arts maven, James Sokol, the trip promises to be a magical mixture of art, architecture, opera, history, food & fun!

These trips are an annual sell-out. Spaces are offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Reserve your space(s) soon!
