"VIVACE is a great way to connect with other young friends who share a love of opera. Through VIVACE, I made friends with people who share a love of great singing and innovative productions."

“As someone who has never attended an opera, this was a great experience. Just as important as the performance, is the social aspect of VIVACE, which adds a lot of value to me. The after parties, champagne intermissions, meeting cast members, hanging out with people in our age range, and great seats all make this a very attractive program.”

Jeff S., VIVACE Season Pass holder
