New Jersey Association of Verismo Opera Opens 2018 with 'Bring The Family To The Opera'
The New Jersey Association of Verismo Opera, the house opera company of the Bergen Performing Arts Center (bergenPAC), resumes in March the Bring the Family to the Opera initiative. This well-received program introduces children and the extended family to live, fully staged performances of grand opera, as the composer intended.
On March 8, 9, and 10, the program's 40% off special ticket rate on $55 and $45 tickets with promotion code (TURANDOT) goes on sale to see Giacomo Puccini's spectacular work, Turandot. The opera performs on April 22, 2018 at 3:00 p.m. at bergenPAC, located at 30 North Van Brunt Street, in Englewood, New Jersey.
"Verismo Opera's highly successful Bring the Family to the Opera introduces parents and their children to live opera and classical music. Turandot features principal singers and the Verismo Opera Chorus singing in Italian with English supertitles provided. Youngsters are thrilled to see the cast perform in period costumes on the stage accompanied by a live orchestra. We want children and their families to experience quality, affordable operatic performances," said opera legend Lucine Amara, Artistic Director of the New Jersey Association of Verismo Opera.
