Open House

The Open House will introduce principal artists, who will be featured in the Verismo Opera’s new production of Giuseppe Verdi’s Rigoletto, performing arias and duets, as well as other familiar operas.  The Verismo Opera staff will discuss opportunities to sing in the Verismo Opera Chorus, participate as supernumeraries (extras), and get involved in volunteer openings behind-the-scenes. Exhibits will be on display showing memorabilia, costumes, and photos from Verismo Opera’s 28 years of producing grand operas, sponsoring an annual international vocal competition, presenting concerts, holding master classes, giving operalogues, and training the stars of tomorrow.

Verismo Opera, the house opera company of the Bergen Performing Arts Center (bergenPAC), will perform Giuseppe Verdi’s famous work, Rigoletto on October 23 at 3:00 p.m. at the theatre.  Tickets are now on sale.
