Archive material of New York City Opera Performances and Performers.

What did we lose with the demise of the NYCO in Sept. 2013?
1. Standard repetory, usually done well, at reasonable prices.
2. Exposure to many neglected and new operas
3. A chance to discover young singers who would go onto have very sucessful careers.
4. The home for Beverly Sills at her peak.
This series will review many examples of all the above.
