New York City Opera in the Park in Bryant Park

Bryant Park presents New York City Opera in the park in spring and summer 2018.


New York City Opera

New York City Opera was founded at New York City Center in 1943 to make opera accessible to all New Yorkers at a reasonable price. It helped launch the careers of many now famous opera singers.

New York City Opera moved to Lincoln Center from 1966 to 2010. The Company ran into financial problems and closed in 2013, but was revived in 2016.

Today New York City Opera is back with its traditional emphasis on American opera.
