If you were there…

Our Annual Gala on October 24, 2015 at the beautiful Mercer Oaks Golf Course and Catering in Princeton Junction, NJ was a wonderful success.   It was a very special evening to kick off our Spanish-themed season with our FANTASIA DE ESPAÑA, celebrating our new fiery production of Georges Bizet’s CARMEN!

Our gala honoree was WWFM The Classical Network, 2014 Recipient of the ASCAP Foundation Deems Taylor/Virgil Thomson Radio Broadcast Award.

The highlight of the event was a memorable Flamenco Trio performance, featuring nationally-known guitarist Cristian Puig, dancer Marilia Quevedo from Argentina and dancer Elisabet Torras Aguilera from Spain.

We applaud our 27th Season Gala Sponsors and Donors, who helped to make our October 24, 2015 event so unique and memorable!

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. Here were some highlights:

  • Spectacular Principal Cast
  • Exciting performances by Boheme Opera Orchestra and Chorus
  • Cinematic Digital Set Design and Animation
  • State-of-the-Art Lighting
  • Original Costumes, Makeup and Choreography
  • Updating of characterization to give a new “fashionista” look at the legendary Violetta Valery and her world

We succeeded in our first Kickstarter fundraising effort last season, entitled Virtual Stages: Boheme Opera NJ’s New Vision, reaching and surpassing our goal on July 6, 2014.  We thank the Kickstarter community and our backers for their support and belief in the project.
