Verismo Opera Company joins Vallejo’s Waterfront Weekend festival with an hour of Il Trovatore highlights. Join us in an open air concert at the Bandstand in Alden Park on historic Mare Island and celebrate with us!

Nearby, sample wine at Vino Godfather, a brew at Mare Island Brewing Co. at the Coal Sheds, have a shot of spirits at Savage and Cook across the street or visit St. Peter’s Chapel, home to one of the largest collections of Tiffany stained glass windows under one roof.

Parking is limited so arrive early or you can hop on a tour bus/van which departs from the Vallejo Ferry Terminal and 9 other stops about every 15 minutes between 12pm and 5pm and be transported by Verismo Opera’s vocal virtuosi accompanied by a live orchestra.

There will be limited seating provided. You may also want to bring a picnic blanket or a lawn chair!

Verismo Opera makes opera accessible to the public at reasonable prices through a cooperative effort of professional singers, instrumentalists and artists. Supertitles in English are offered at each venue. Performances include costumes, sets, and chamber orchestra in intimate settings. These settings make the opera experience more personal. In addition, Verismo Opera provides opportunities for aspiring singers to showcase their talent in a live theater setting.

We perform popular operas such as: Carmen, La Boheme, Madame Butterfly, Il Trovatore, La Traviata and Tosca as a contribution to the performing arts. Some of our favorite opera composers include: Verdi, Puccini, Bizet, Donizetti, Wagner and Mozart.
