The Tappan Zee High School Italian classes and Italian Club recently sponsored its 15th Annual Night at the Opera.

After studying Giuseppe Verdi’s La Traviata in their Italian classes, students and their families were given the opportunity to attend an evening performance of the opera in the prestigious Metropolitan Opera House in Lincoln Center in Manhattan.  The group met at the high school for a pre-opera reception before embarking on this cultural journey.  The trip was a tremendous success. 

The following day, students shared their experience with their classmates discussing the similarities and differences between the stage production they had just seen and the production they had been watching in class.

The Italian classes and Italian Club were so motivated by the experience, they have already begun planning next year’s trip.
