Our Season

Now Playing

We present all of our productions in English; we aim to introduce opera to those who are unfamiliar with it (including many Bronx school children) while providing meaningful opportunities for outstanding, talented artists to further their promising careers and continuing to proudly represent the quality of life in our community.

For more information, please contact General Director Benjamin Spierman at 646-281-9963.
