Since its founding New York City Opera has played a critical role in both the city’s cultural life and the world's operatic landscape. Over its seven-decade history, City Opera has launched many major operatic careers through engaging productions of diverse repertoire, innovative commissions, and regional premieres, resulting in a uniquely American opera company of international stature.

​Today, New York City Opera continues its legacy at a new, state-of-the-art home at the Rose Theater at Jazz at Lincoln Center. Taking inspiration from the vibrant community around it, City Opera celebrates diversity with a new Ópera en Español series and LGBT Initiative, and revitalized outreach and education programs are cultivating and inspiring the next generation of City Opera audiences.
