On November 19th, students from Central Blvd. Elementary School, Charles Champagne Elementary School, Kramer Lane Elementary School, and JFK Middle School attended the Metropolitan Opera: Live in HD Program. Accompanying the students for this 21st Century trip were Mrs. McGrath and Ms. Austin. We saw Glass’s Satyagraha at the Westbury UA Theater. For many of the participants it was their first Opera. We were all truly captivated by this performance despite the lack of subtitles. Many audience members complimented the Bethpage students on their spectacular behavior and interest in opera. They were also thrilled to hear that we are the only school district in Long Island that participates in the Metropolitan Opera partnership. Everyone is looking forward to the next Opera, which will be held in December.
