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.
Participation is free.
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].
Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, Opera to the People has suspended its activities until both New York University and the city's opera companies resume in-person gatherings.
