Opera to the People is a group open to students or other young present and future audience members in order to delve into the world and language of opera, with the objective of fostering a new generation of attentive opera-goers. The group meets to watch and listen to recordings of a particular opera that will then be attended LIVE. This serves the purpose of familiarizing the participants with the themes and structure of the work, enhancing the experience in the theater. Casa Italiana kindly covers the cost of a number of tickets for the performance. Led by Julian Sachs, Program Coordinator at NYU Casa Italiana Zerilli-Marimò.
The first gathering of the 2018-19 opera season will be dedicated to Verdi's "Aida," which the group will be ATTENDING LIVE at The Metropolitan Opera the following night (September 26th).
NYU Casa Italiana Zerilli-Marimò will be offering 10 tickets to NYU students attending this gathering.
The evening remains free and open to all students and young adults interested.
Please note: Casa Italiana hosts but does not interfere with the programming choices of the group. For all information, join the group on Facebook here or contact the coordinator of the group, Julian Sachs, at [email protected].
