Sara Smith's Drama, Art, History & Travel Links

April 06, 2020

Here's a collection of links to drama, art, history and travel resources you can enjoy over Spring Break from the comfort of your homes.  Something to break up the routine and channel your inner armchair adventurer!

Plays & Films:
The link above is updated all the time, and has a host of different genres, including:
> Hamlet, The Winter’s Tale, Much Ado About Nothing, Henry V
> The Marriage of Figaro, Aida
> Myth: The Rise and Fall of Orpheus, V for Victory, Sound of Music, Only the Brave, Jesus Christ Superstar
> Cirque de Soleil Cabinet of Curiosities (and several others)
> Peter and the Wolf
> The Croft, "One Man, Two Guvnors" (with James Corden), Amsterdam, Present Laughter (with Kevin Kline), Jane Eyre, Oscar Wilde’s "The Importance of Being Earnest"

Art Exhibits:
Or maybe art is more your style.  How about a virtual visit to the Smithsonian Portrait Gallery to take a look at the Eye to I: Self-portraits from 1900 to now exhibit, or the First Ladies Exhibit?

Maybe you would rather visit one of these galleries through Google Arts and Culture:
> Musee d’Orsay in Paris
> The Hermitage in St Petersburg
> The Georgia O’Keefe Museum in Santa Fe

Maybe you are a history buff.  In that case check out this amazing interactive timeline from the British Museum.

Explore Earth:
Or maybe being outside is more your deal.  Check out Google Earth’s Explore feature.  You can go on virtual hikes in national parks, or explore cherry blossoms festivals around the world.  Learn about the construction of the Eiffel tower, or check out aquariums around the world.

Whatever you do with your week I hope you relax, think about something besides the news for a little while and enjoy your time!
