Road Scholar
Program #21053RJ
6 Days | 5 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Easy
While all of our learning adventures offer extraordinary value, our "Best Value" programs were rated by our participants themselves who thought their dollar went particularly far.
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.
Gilbert and Sullivan have been delighting audiences since their first collaboration in 1871. Hone in on the duo’s most popular works in an exploration of “The Pirates of Penzance,” “The Mikado” and “H.M.S. Pinafore,” three enduring comic operas that continue to fill theaters to this day. Explore their words and music through musical selections, video performances and lecture/discussions filled with airy persiflage and innocent merriment. Write a song parody, read from the “Bab Ballads” — Gilbert’s series of illustrated poems — and enjoy adaptations, send-ups and translations in a week of laughing song and merry dance!


Highlights

• Experience classic performances of Gilbert and Sullivan works through rare video that is not available commercially and hear different artists sing the original songs in recordings that span 100 years.
• Write your own original song lyrics based on a Gilbert and Sullivan model.
• Spend the week with an enthusiastic instructor with a half-century’s experience in the study and direction of the Gilbert and Sullivan repertoire, including 30 years teaching for Elderhostel and Road Scholar.
