Verismo Opera depends on donated services, goods and cash gifts in order to survive. You can help in a number of ways that will have real impact on the continued fiscal health of the company.  Our goal is to make opera accessible to the public at reasonable prices through a community effort of professional musicians and singers.  Ticket sales only cover a fraction of the cost of a production, so we rely on generous people like you to help us make up the difference.  We are a non-profit 501(c)3, so you can write your donation off on your taxes.  

You may write a donation check made out to Verismo Opera and send it to:  Verismo Opera, 2501 Carquinez Ave, El Cerrito, CA 94530 or you may donate through PayPal:
