"We want children and their families to enjoy and experience high-quality operatic performances that are affordable,” said Lucine Amara, Verismo's artistic director.
A dark, romantic tale of family honor, betrayal and madness, Gaetano Donizetti's "Lucia di Lammermoor" is set in the Lammermuir Hills of Scotland in the 17th century. It will be sung in Italian in bel canto style, with projected English subtitles.
Coloratura soprano Hea-Ran Kim of Ridgewood has the role of Lucia.
Maestro Anthony Morss will conduct.
Street parking is available with designated handicapped parking spaces. Hearing assist systems can be obtained through the house manager in the lobby.
Verismo's 2015 season was made possible, in part, by funding from the New Jersey Council on the Arts through grants administered by the Bergen County Department of Parks, Division of Cultural and Historic Affairs.
Other supporters include Children’s Aid Foundation, Robert J. Campbell, MD, Cesare L. Santeramo, KSJ, Paul Weiss Matching Fund, The Gerda Lissner Foundation, Inc., Mary Casella Briggs Fund, and Vanguard Charitable Endowment Fund.
