Share the love for opera with your family and friends this Holiday Season.  Support the New Jersey Association of Verismo Opera, a nonprofit, tax-exempt organization.  Verismo Opera, a professional company in Bergen County, New Jersey, presents grand productions at the Bergen Performing Arts Center with traditional staging performed as the composer intended.  Ticket revenues only cover a small percentage of the cost to produce a fully staged production.

Donations will continue the company’s work for several programs.  These include opportunities for young, up-and-coming artists to perform on a professional stage, as well as the Annual International Vocal Competition’s cash awards to talented artists of all ages.  Also, donations will support the extensive concert series presented in seniors centers, nursing homes, and organizations that care for challenged adults, as well as free summer concerts open to the public.

Make a donation online of any size today. You may also make a contribution with a check made out to NJAVO and sent to P.O. Box 3024, Fort Lee, NJ 07024-9024. Donations are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
