Program #14347ENZ
6 Days | 5 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Easy
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Immerse yourself in operatic bliss and experience everything that makes opera truly great art. Beyond the dramatic and musical hyperbole of opera lies an art form which is actually quite accessible. Explore some of the most gorgeous music ever composed for the stage. Examine the dramatic libretto, alluring music, and complex characters, and trace the history of Opera’s development and production. Learn about the lives and careers of famous opera singers. Best of all, be touched by the music!


Highlights

• Puccini took verismo opera to its heights. Hear the greatest singers performing some of the most gorgeous music ever composed for the stage.
• Analyze the beautifully dramatic and expressive operatic works of Verdi.
