Operas at the Movies

OPERA AT THE MOVIES  
Member Aloha Holloway organized an Opera At The Movies group for 2013-2014, 2014-2015, and 2015-2016.  The operas were filmed simultaneously with the Met Opera production, and the live operas were shown at the AMC Theater in Hamilton. Aloha purchased group tickets and arranged rides 

Currently, Aloha Holloway is taking a leave of absence as chair and will not be taking reservations.  Below is the schedule of the operas for the 2016-2017 MetHD series at the AMC theater in Hamilton this coming year for your information.
