OPERA America’s National Opera Center is your home for performances, rehearsals, auditions, and more. Your health is a top priority for us.

The Opera Center is open at full service — with a variety of ongoing safety precautions. Since we first reopened in August 2020, we have continued to follow the recommended guidelines and procedures of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), New York State, and New York City.
