Take off for a 5-night operatic journey to enjoy spring in “the city that never sleeps.”
Spring in NYC is always an exciting time! The performing arts are in full swing and weather can be a bit chilly, the days are usually sunny and flowers are starting to bloom. Even so, 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. Three works await at The Metropolitan Opera!
Begin with a French gem – Massenet’s haunting Werther – the ultimate story of unrequited love! Next, Rossini’s scintillating La Cenerentola! This delightful version of Cinderella is a charmer! Our final evening features a beautiful production of Verdi’s masterpiece La Traviata – a gorgeous, if heartbreaking way to end our journey!
Prepare for the performances with James Sokol’s Exploring Opera Lectures. Get a peek “behind the curtain” on a Metropolitan Opera Backstage Tour. Gain insights into the operatic voice, singing and vocal technique in a Private Vocal Forum. Finally, “break bread” with opera professionals to learn about their day-to-day lives and to ask your “burning questions” at our exclusive & delicious Opera Dinner.
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 glorious mixture of opera performances & insights, terrific meals, and great fun!
