Our exciting 2012-2013 Metropolitan Opera Study Trip Season includes two Verdi productions — Otello with Renée Fleming and La Traviata with Placido Domingo—in honor of the composer’s 200th birthday, plus two new productions: Gaetano Donizetti’s L’Elisir d’Amore, with audience favorite Anna Netrebko, and Thomas Adès conducting his
modern masterpeice The Tempest.
All opera trips feature faculty leadership, advance study notes, round-trip transportation and bus driver gratuity. Operas are sung in Italian, Russian or French, and each seat has an individual screen with English subtitles for simultaneous translation of the words sung on stage.
The motorcoach departs from Clayton Hall at 7:00 a.m., and from the Wilmington Campus, 2800 Pennsylvania Avenue (first parking lot on the right) at 7:30 a.m. The coach departs NYC at approximately 4:30 p.m. to return to Delaware.
Independent time for dining, visiting museums, or shopping is provided prior to the performance.
