Founded in 2000, the OCB is known for taking its performances out of the traditional opera house, into more intimate settings. The troupe has performed in guests' living rooms, Manhattan penthouses, and even at Fulton Ferry Landing. OCB has become so renowned for its settings, that the TV quiz show Jeopardy once asked: "The Opera Co. of this NYC borough performs in unusual venues, like people's living rooms." It was answered correctly.
Freeing the performance from the traditional venue is just part of the company's goal to make opera more accessible and affordable to a wider and often younger audience. There is no elaborate staging, and the costumes are modern dress. The opera-in-concert that remains focuses entirely on the music, the performers and their rapport with the audience. "Maestro Jay Meetze is lauded for his passionate and undeniably impressive command of performance and sympathetic leadership."- Opera News.
