Share your love for opera with family and friends this season.  What can you do?  Give a gift of grand opera!  First, support the New Jersey Association of Verismo Opera.  Make a donation.  The opera company is a nonprofit, tax-exempt organization in Bergen County, New Jersey.

The company presents grand operas at the Bergen Performing Arts Center.  Verismo Opera also performs each opera using traditional staging.  Ticket revenues only cover a small percentage of the cost to produce a fully staged production.

Give the Gift of Opera

Donations continue the company’s work with several programs.  Also, this gives opportunities for artists to perform.  Singers perform on Verismo Opera’s professional stage.  Furthermore, donations support the annual vocal competition’s cash awards for talented artists.  Beyond that, contributions support the concert series.  These concerts are presented in senior centers and nursing homes.  Additional locations include organizations caring for challenged adults. These donations support Verismo Opera’s free, public summer concerts.

Make a donation online of any size. Another option is to send a contribution by check.  Make out checks to NJAVO.  In addition, mail checks with the opera’s name.  Beyond that, list the quantity needed.  Send these details and the payment to P.O. Box 3024, Fort Lee, NJ 07024-9024. Furthermore, donations are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
