(Bergen County, New Jersey; August 21, 2018) – The New Jersey Association of Verismo Opera, the house opera company of the Bergen Performing Arts Center (bergenPAC), opens in September the Bring the Family to the Opera. This well-received program introduces children and the extended family to live, fully staged performances of grand opera, as the composer intended.

On September 13, 14, and 15, the program's 40% off special ticket rate on $55 and $45 tickets with promotion code (NORMA) goes on sale to see Vincenzo Bellini's Norma. The grand opera company performs Norma only on October 28, 2018 at 3:00 p.m. at bergenPAC, located at 30 North Van Brunt Street, in Englewood, New Jersey. Traditional staging is featured with magnificent Italian designed sets and a full orchestra. The opera is sung in Italian with English supertitles projected.

“Verismo Opera's highly successful Bring the Family to the Opera allows extended families and their children to see and enjoy traditional opera, as the composer intended. Youngsters are taken to ancient Rome to the time of the druids and see the cast perform in period costumes on the stage accompanied by a live orchestra and a full chorus. We want children and their families to experience quality, affordable operatic performances. After all, children are the future life blood of the arts,” said opera legend Lucine Amara, Artistic Director of the New Jersey Association of Verismo Opera.
