The New York City Opera, along with the rest of the world, is on lock-down.
But this will pass. And when it does the arts will lead the charge to recovery.
Soon you will hear more from us and the City Opera will be singing again.
Please join us in thanking those who are risking their lives to save ours.
Stay safe and healthy!
Michael Capasso and the entire New York City Opera Family.

January 12, 2017 DEADLINE- The Best of All Hal Prince’s Worlds The fever dream that is Leonard Bernstein’s Candide is born again with the reconstituted New York City Opera, along with the happy delirium that is the hallmark of Harold Prince’s revival of this landmark work. Far too much intellectual energy has been spent debating the show’s place in the repertory — is it opera? musical theater? — and in an amusing twist, this production is being presented at Jazz At Lincoln Center’s Frederick P. Rose Hall. Call it what you will, Candide taps gleefully into each of those disparate worlds, offering an effervescent tonic in trying times. It all but fizzes before your eyes.   Read More

January 9, 2017 NEW YORK TIMES - The Adventures of ‘Candide,’ and of City Opera Since New York City Opera emerged from bankruptcy a year ago, it’s been hard to know what to make of it. Is this venture truly a renaissance of the venerable company that went out of business in 2013 after 70 adventurous years? Or should the quite variable productions that have been offered over the past year be seen as the first steps of a completely reconceived City Opera?

With a new — though, as you’ll see, not entirely new — production of Leonard Bernstein’s “Candide” that opened on Friday at the Rose Theater at Jazz at Lincoln Center, the company may finally have, to quote the show, “the best of all possible worlds.”   Read More

February 22, 2016 NEW YORK TIMES - NEW YORK CITY OPERA UNVEILS REST OF SEASON New York City Opera... said on Monday that it would stage Daniel Catán’s “Florencia en el Amazonas” in June at Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Rose Theater as part of a new Spanish-language opera series.

The reorganized company, which began its first, abbreviated season last month with a consciously old-fashioned production of Puccini’s “Tosca” as a nod to the first work City Opera performed in 1944, chose “Florencia” and two other contemporary pieces to round out the season.

It will present the East Coast premiere of “Hopper’s Wife” — a 1997 chamber opera by Stewart Wallace that imagines a marriage between the painter Edward Hopper and the gossip columnist Hedda Hopper — at Harlem Stage from April 28 through May 1.

And on March 16 it will inaugurate a new concert series at the Appel Room in Jazz at Lincoln Center with the premiere of David Hertzberg’s “Sunday Morning”.   Read More
January 16, 2016 THE NEW YORKER - LEAP OF FAITH, AN AMBITIOUS ORGANIZATION TRIES TO REBOOT “THE PEOPLE’S OPERA.” The tentative return of City Opera will take place at Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Rose Theatre, the moderately sized and acoustically satisfying venue at Columbus Circle, which the organization is renting for a staging of “Tosca” (Jan. 20-24). “Our goal is to reëngage by returning the company to a Lincoln Center venue, because the audience liked to associate the company with a permanent location,” Capasso says. But will they bite? Those who long for Franco Zeffirelli’s sumptuously conservative production of Puccini’s masterpiece, which the Met replaced with the austerely modernist Luc Bondy staging in 2009, might well be cheered by the NYCO Renaissance production: to evoke the three specific Roman locations in which the composer set each act, the organization has partnered with the Archivio Storico Ricordi, in Milan, to re-create the costumes and décor designed by the great Adolfo Hohenstein for the opera’s world première, in 1900. The two casts for the run will include established up-and-comers (the tenor James Valenti and the soprano Latonia Moore), young unknowns, and even a respected veteran (the baritone Carlo Guelfi)—just as the old City Opera would have done. For anyone in New York who loves opera, attendance is mandatory.   Read More
January 12, 2016 WALL STREET JOURNAL - JUDGE OKS CITY OPERA’S REVIVAL PLAN The New York City Opera will sing again.

More than two years after it ran out of money and had to shut down midseason, the cultural institution known as “the people’s opera” won approval of its plan to exit bankruptcy and re-launch performances under the control of an organization headed by hedge-fund manager Roy Niederhoffer.

Judge Sean Lane of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Manhattan approved the opera’s plan Tuesday afternoon, saying he was happy to confirm the plan of “a beloved and important cultural institution.”   Read More
January 12, 2016 NEW YORK TIMES - NEW YORK CITY OPERA WILL RETURN, AND SOON, UNDER REORGANIZATION PLAN New York City Opera is coming back under new management.

The venerable opera company — which filed for bankruptcy protection in 2013 after a series of missteps left it unable to put on its season — will soon be revived in a different form under a reorganization plan confirmed Tuesday by Judge Sean H. Lane of United States Bankruptcy Court in Manhattan.

The group taking over the company, NYCO Renaissance, hopes to use the City Opera name by next week, when it plans to present Puccini’s “Tosca” on Jan. 20-24 at the Rose Theater at Jazz at Lincoln Center. If all goes smoothly, company officials said, they hope their new “Tosca” can be billed a co-production of NYCO Renaissance and City Opera. The plan calls for putting on annual seasons.   Read More
December 17, 2015 NYCO RENAISSANCE PRESENTS A NEW PRODUCTION OF GIACOMO PUCCINI'S TOSCA American Premiere of the Stage and Costume Designs from the Original Production
Six Performances January 20-24, 2016 at
Rose Theater, Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Frederick P. Rose Hall

NYCO Renaissance pays tribute to New York City Opera with six performances of a new production of Tosca, January 20–24, 2016 at Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Frederick P. Rose Hall, Time Warner Center, New York City.

Giacomo Puccini’s three-act melodrama with its vivid Roman tableaux—the Church of Sant’Andrea della Valle, the Palazzo Farnese, and Castel Sant’Angelo—comes to brilliant life in this staging, based on Adolf Hohenstein’s striking set and costume designs for the original production that premiered at Rome’s Teatro Costanzi in 1900. For the first time outside of Italy, American audiences will be able to take in Hohenstein’s majestic Roman setting, produced with the documentary resources and cooperation of the Archivio Storico Ricordi in Milan. John Farrell serves as associate stage designer and Ildikó Debrezceni as associate costume designer. Director Lev Pugliese, making his American debut, directs the production.   Read More
December 2, 2015 A GROUP CEDES ITS BID TO REVIVE CITY OPERA TO A RIVAL The long, tangled court battle between two groups seeking to revive the bankrupt New York City Opera came to an end on Wednesday afternoon when one group withdrew its proposal and cleared the way for its rival to try to bring back the beloved opera company.

Gene Kaufman, an architect and one of the suitors who has been vying to reorganize and take control of City Opera, withdrew as part of a negotiated settlement that calls for granting his group $300,000, according to a court filing. The move made it almost certain that the next chapter in the company’s history would be written by NYCO Renaissance, a group backed by Roy G. Niederhoffer, an investment manager who served on the old City Opera board.   Read More

November 11, 2015 EFFORT TO REVIVE CITY OPERA INCLUDES A 'TOSCA' STAGING NYCO Renaissance announced Wednesday that it would mount Puccini’s “Tosca” — the first production City Opera ever did, back in 1944 — Jan. 20-24 at the Rose Theater at Jazz at Lincoln Center, which is in the Time Warner Center at Columbus Circle.

“In a tribute to the history of City Opera, it was my idea from the very beginning that the relaunch of City Opera should be with ‘Tosca,’” Michael Capasso, the nascent company’s general director, said in an interview. His concept has changed a bit: The group originally hoped to mount a lavish production by Franco Zeffirelli but now plans to use a historical, more economical one based on the designs Adolf Hohenstein created for the opera’s premiere in 1900 in Rome.   Read More
October 6, 2015 PLAN TO REVIVE NEW YORK CITY OPERA HAS CREDITORS’ BACKING More than two years have passed since New York City Opera filed for bankruptcy, leaving in its wake large debts and a legal battle between two rival groups hoping to revive it. Now one of them has won the backing of an important constituency: the creditors who are owed money in the bankruptcy case.

The group — which is called NYCO Renaissance and is led by Roy G. Niederhoffer, an investment manager, and Michael Capasso, an opera producer — was joined by the official committee of unsecured creditors in the case, in a proposal to reorganize City Opera that was filed late Monday in United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York. The filing said that their plan was “in the best interests of the debtor’s estate and creditors.”   Read More
