Summer Special Events

Throughout the summer, Verismo Opera continues to present concerts in New Jersey to populations unable to attend our theatrical productions and public concerts. These concerts are private events.

First, the grand opera company delights residents with developmental challenges at Spectrum for Living in Teaneck and Closter.  At the next concert, Verismo Opera’s singers entertain veterans at the Veterans Home in Paramus.  Later in the summer, they return to perform at the senior living community of Five Star Premiere Residences of Teaneck.  This season, Verismo Opera also premieres in concert at a private event at The Colony in Fort Lee.
