|Description||The New York City Opera, called "the people's opera" by New York Mayor Fiorello La Guardia, was founded in 1943 to provide financially accessible opera to a wide audience. The New York City Opera takes a different approach to opera, staging stunning, big-budget productions. It aims to reach wider audiences, showing its commitment to adventurous premieres, new operas, American musicals and novels presented as fresh, innovative operettas and even obscure works by lesser known composers.
During its history, The New York City Opera has helped launch the careers of many great opera stars including Placido Domingo, Carol Vaness, Jose Carreras, Beverly Sills, Sherrill Milnes, Shirley Verrett, Tatiana Troyanos, Jerry Hadley, Catherine Malfitano, Samuel Ramey.
