In September, Verismo Opera resumes the Bring the Family to the Opera initiative.  This well-received program introduces children and families to live, fully staged performances of grand opera, as the composer intended.  Time limited discount tickets go on sale to see the company’s production of Giacomo Puccini’s Tosca at the Bergen Performing Arts Center (bergenPAC) on October 15, 2017 at 3:00 p.m.

“This program gives parents an opportunity to introduce their children to live opera and classical music presented on the stage with the complete cast in period costumes. We want children and their families to enjoy and experience high quality, affordable operatic performances,” said opera legend Lucine Amara, Artistic Director of the New Jersey Association of Verismo Opera.
