Das Rheingold Opera Simulcast

The Humanities Department of Clinton Community College is excited to offer a field trip to Lake Placid to see a live, HD simulcast of the opera, “Das Rheingold” on Sunday, October 17, 2010. The simulcast begins at 1 p.m. and lasts approximately three hours. A van will leave the CCC gymnasium at 11 a.m. and return at approximately 5:30 p.m.

All students, faculty and staff are invited to attend, however MUS 101 and ART 110 students will have priority seating in the college van. Since van capacity is ten individuals, attendees are encouraged to purchase tickets, which are available in the college book store, as soon as possible. The cost is $16 per ticket for students; $18 per ticket for faculty/staff.

The deadline for purchasing tickets is Friday, October 8, 2010.
