Saturday Afternoons at the Opera


Course Description

This course on opera will be held in conjunction with HD simulcast from New York’s Metropolitan Opera. Starting this fall, we will enjoy nine operas.  Some of the operas explored will be new productions of Dead Man Walking, X: The Life and Times of Malcolm X, Florencia en el Amazonas, as well as favourites Nabucco and Roméo et Juliette and others.

This course will take place both at the Thomas More Institute, for listening and discussion in preparation for the operas shown, and at the Cineplex of your choice where Met Opera HD is simulcast. 

Participants are responsible for their own ticket purchases.

Please note that this course has a maximum enrollment of 16 students and that we do not allow participants to audit courses for free.
