Verismo Opera Theater
We have assembled a very talented group of people - Board members, Production staff, Stage Directors, and of course some of the best opera singers in the Chicagoland area. Our vision and "modus operandi" could be summed up with a quick look at our name. "Verismo" translates to "realism" from the Italian word "Vero" - true. So, our philosophy is to focus on artistic truth. Opera tells a story, and the music takes us on a journey. We strive to breathe realism to the characters and the poetry and lyrics. We will bring to life the wonderful stories of opera, and we thank you for taking this trip with us!
