Our passion is to bring opera out of the theatre and into the lives of all. Our purpose is to showcase impressive voices and the best artists in an intimate, dynamic setting. Our connection makes opera more accessible with performing experiences in fun settings.
The Opera Company of Brooklyn (OCB) was founded in 2000 by and for artists to promote talented young artists, while providing affordable and accessible opera thus building new audiences for the art form. Our innovative company has been featured on the Jeopardy quiz show, Good Morning America, and CNN.
