The People's Opera

New York State Theater

            Dubbed “The People’s Opera” by Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia when it was founded 70 years ago, the New York City Opera has unfortunately closed its doors and is initiating the Chapter 11 process, says Managing Director, George Steele. 

It’s the place where exciting young singers like Beverly Sills and Placido Domingo made their New York debuts and will be sorely missed.  What a terrible shame!
