Each year, we take a field trip to view an opera at the Metropolitan Opera House at Lincoln Center in New York City. Prior to attending, we dissect the authentic text (the libretto) of the opera to extract poignant scenes and major themes and motifs. With this trip, students are exposed to authentic Italian operas, just as they were written hundreds of years ago.
