Road Scholar
Program #13578RJ
5 Days | 4 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.
Curtains up, it’s opening night! Home to more than just swaying palms and sand beaches on Florida’s Gulf Coast, Sarasota is also home to a true ommagio operatico. Join us for an exploration into the dramatic world of opera as the prestigious Sarasota Opera Company opens its 56th season at the magnificent Mediterranean Revival-style Edwards Theater. Feel the gaiety in a vibrato, the sadness of an aria lamentosa, and enjoy an intermezzo exploring the colorful, artistic streets of Florida’s capital of culture.


Highlights

• Go backstage with performers and technicians and take a peek at the rich costumes as you delve into opera beyond the stage.
• Receive expert instruction from veterans of the stage and divas in their own right, as you analyze, review and critique the performances.
• Take advantage of historic downtown Sarasota’s eclectic culinary scene during a dinner on your own at one of the many restaurants within walking distance of the Sarasota Opera House.
Due to the nature of this program, listening devices are not available.
