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.

Music by Mozart, Words by Da Ponte: Three Great Comic Operas
Aided by sub-titled video performances, we will revel in “The Marriage of Figaro,” “Don Giovanni” and “Così fan tutte” to see how Mozart’s music and Da Ponte’s words gave us some of opera’s most glorious melodies and most human characters.

Opera in the Works: Verdi’s “Ernani”
With professional musicians, study Giuseppe Verdi’s most popular early opera from the viewpoints of the singer, vocal coach, and conductor, enhanced by live and recorded music. We will also examine auditions, coaching, and production costs.

Singing the Faith Over Centuries
Trace the history of religious song in the rich treasury of Judeo-Christian traditions. Learn how faith gave voice to everything from medieval chant to contemporary carols, and how hymns promoted theology and confronted heresy amid cultural changes
