Opera to the People is a group open to NYU and other 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 be attended LIVE the following evening. 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 2022-23 opera season will be dedicated to Cherubini's Medea which the group will be ATTENDING LIVE at The Metropolitan Opera on October 5th. The first 25 NYU students who RSVP (and attend) will receive FREE TICKETS to the performance. Remaining tickets will be distributed to all other attending students in RSVP order.
The evening remains free and open to all students interested.
