Intro to Opera
WEEKDAY CULTURE CLASS

Intro to Opera

The opera isn't all about the fat woman singing. This series of crash courses covers the basics of Carmen, La Boheme, Madame Butterfly and La Traviata before you see the performance, allowing you to feign Italian proficiency and secure your date's love. Classes include sushi catering and (thankfully) Stella.

411: series begins Oct. 3, ticket and class packages range from $133.20-$450, more information at www.nycopera.com

Beer on the Pier 3
BEER NEXT WEEKEND

Beer on the Pier 3

Beer. On a Pier. Enough said. We also hear there's great live music, food and general carousing, of the variety that occurs on piers.

411: Oct. 7, noon-4pm and 6-10pm, Pier 94 and W. 55th St; tickets $43.50 in advance, $50 at the door
