Hamilton’s students in the Program in New York City attended a performance of the comedic opera Il Barbiere di Siviglia, or The Barber of Seville, at the Metropolitan Opera on Nov. 4.

The Barber of Seville
is a classic Italian opera, featuring the complicated love story of Rosina and Count Almiaviva as they hide from Rosina’s guardian, Dr. Bartolo. The production was the first Italian opera to be performed in the U.S, with its original debut at the Park Theater of New York in 1825.

Earlier that day students were treated to a one-hour tour of the Whitney Museum, a modern-contemporary art gallery. The museum features such artists as Hopper, Pollack and Georgia O'Keefe.  These cultural opportunities have been offered to the New York City Program students courtesy of Kevin '70 and Karen Kennedy. 

The students' next excursion will be to the New York Philharmonic for Handel’s Messiah on Dec. 16.
