• Bringing two grand productions, including Giuseppe Verdi’s AIDA to the stage this year.

• Training a new generation of singers through the New Jersey Association of Verismo Opera Annual International Vocal Competition.

• Giving singers of all backgrounds, the opportunities to perform in the Verismo Opera Chorus with experienced professional teachers and directors.

• Coaching up-and-coming artists for principal roles.

• Providing performing opportunities for people of all ages and backgrounds.

• Introducing youngsters and their families to grand opera through special discount ticket rates to see full productions.

• Giving high school students opportunities to be supernumeraries on the stage.

• Bringing concerts to local communities in libraries, senior centers, and other venues for free at a time when these programs are being cut; and much more.

Verismo Opera has been a part of the New Jersey music scene since 1989. It is a nonprofit, tax-exempt organization, and is a grand, professional opera company led by Artistic Director and Met Opera luminary Lucine Amara.
