Participants of the Spring 2016 New York City (NYC) program had opportunity to attend a performance of La Bohème at the Metropolitan Opera on April 29. For many, it was the first time to experience a live operatic production. La Bohème is a timeless love story set in Paris in the 1830s.
This past semester, the NYC program toured a variety of museums, including the Museum of the City of New York, the Morgan Library, Whitney Museum, the Museum of Modern Art, the Tenement Museum and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. In addition, students were especially excited to have seen Hamilton, the Broadway musical, as well as the New York Philharmonic and the New York City Ballet at the Lincoln Center.
According to NYC program scribe, Sharon Liu, “It has been a rewarding experience and a great semester to be in New York City. We would like to thank Hamilton College for providing a variety of opportunities to explore the city to attend tours and exhibitions. Particularly, we would like to thank Professor Chambliss and his wife, Susan Morgan, for being fantastic program directors. Overall, it has been a rewarding experience and a great semester to be in New York City.”
