Notes from the Board
Verismo Opera makes opera accessible to the public at reasonable prices through a community effort of professional musicians and singers. Sub-titles in English are offered at each venue. Performances include costumes, sets, and a chamber orchestra in an intimate setting that brings the drama closer to the audience. This setting makes the opera experience more personal. In addition, Verismo Opera provides opportunities for aspiring and experienced singers to showcase their talent in a live theater setting.
Frederick Winthrop, Director of Verismo Opera, has brought opera productions to the Mira Community Cultural Center and Bay Area Stage in Vallejo for a number of years. Mr. Winthrop will be our guest speaker at the April 22, 2017 VHNA General Meeting. The meeting will be held from 10 am to Noon at the Mira Community Cultural Center, 51 Daniels Avenue in Vallejo.
The VHNA and its members will provide Moschetti coffee and refreshments. Please mark your calendar to attend the meeting and meet Mr. Winthrop and find out more about his passion for opera and staging Verismo Opera productions. Even better, ask a neighbor to join you!
