A Proud Look Back at our Milestone 25th!

Our 25th Anniversary Season was quite exciting, with our largest audiences since 2009, expanded outreach activity that took us to several new venues in Central New Jersey and Bucks County, and continued exploration into virtual design and animation on our main stage.

We brought a celebration of Verdi’s 200th Birthday to Princeton’s Richardson Auditorium.

Our Reunion Operathon, featuring 13 main stage artists from Boheme Opera’s history with live-broadcast and commentary by WWFM The Classical Network, was one of the most unique events to be seen and heard in the region in years.

Our LA TRAVIATA attracted the largest audiences since we moved our productions to Kendall Main Stage Theatre on the campus of The College of New Jersey.

We succeeded in our first Kickstarter fundraising effort in 2014, entitled Virtual Stages: Boheme Opera NJ’s New Vision, reaching and surpassing our goal.  We thank the Kickstarter community and our backers for their support and belief in the project.  We are planning a new project for another Kickstarter project in 2017 – stay tuned!
