Opera to the People is a group open to NYU students 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 third gathering of the 2021-22 opera season will be dedicated to Verdi's Don Carlos which the group will be ATTENDING LIVE at The Metropolitan Opera on March 3rd. The first 25 students who RSVP (and attend) will receive FREE TICKETS to the performance.
Please note: Don Carlos is a particularly long opera and is not recommended to first-time opera-goers.
The evening remains free and open to all NYU students 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
