Field Trips

These classes combine a little learning, little travel, and fine days enjoying the world around us. Our goal is for you to become better acquainted with the natural and cultural opportunities nearby. Because really, there are so many neat things to do. Please join us as we explore Eastern NC. We use vans for our trips, so class sizes are limited. Please register at least one week before class date.

Mozart’s very popular allegorical opera “The Magic Flute” is a fantastical fairy tale. It chronicles the progress of mankind toward the Enlightenment, and it is filled with Masonic symbolism. All that makes its lighthearted music and beautiful costumes even more enjoyable! On Thursday evening we will gather with Jeff Phipps, retired member of ECU’s Theater Department, and he will lead an exploration of this opera. His lecture will make your opera experience much richer. On Saturday we will gather and travel to The Greenville Grand to see the Metropolitan Opera’s Live HD broadcast of The Magic Flute. Price includes lecture, transportation, and ticket to The Magic Flute. Please join us.
