The New Jersey Association of Verismo Opera, the house opera company of the Bergen Performing Arts Center (bergenPAC), opens in September the Bring the Family to the Opera initiative. Of primary importance, this program introduces children and the extended family to live, fully staged performances of grand opera. As a result, the discount ticket rate sale begins in September. On September 13, 14, and 15, the program’s 40% off special discount rate on $55 and $45 tickets goes on sale with promotion code (NORMA) to see Vincenzo Bellini’s Norma.
The grand opera company performs Norma only on October 28, 2018 at 3:00 p.m. See Bellini’s magnificent opera at bergenPAC. The theatre is located at 30 North Van Brunt Street, in Englewood, New Jersey. The production features traditional staging with magnificent Italian designed sets and a full orchestra. In addition, singers perform in Italian with English supertitles projected.
“Verismo Opera’s highly successful Bring the Family to the Opera allows extended families and their children to enjoy traditional opera, as the composer intended. On the stage, youngsters see Gaul during the time of ancient Rome. They view the cast performing in period costumes on the stage accompanied by a live orchestra and a full chorus. Because we want children and their families to experience quality productions, Verismo Opera presents affordable operatic performances. After all, children are the future life blood of the arts,” said opera legend Lucine Amara, Artistic Director of the New Jersey Association of Verismo Opera.
