NCO was founded in 2009 with the Season One production of ‘The Barber of Seville’ at the Historic 1100 seat Riviera Theatre. As a follow up, NCO presented Rigoletto in 2010 about which the Buffalo News reviewed, “Magnificent Rigoletto Proves That NCO is For Real”. Since then NCO has produced Il Trovatore, Il Tabarro (on the USS Sullivan at the Buffalo Naval Park) as well as La Boheme, Don Pasquale, Tosca and The Marriage of Figaro.
In 2016 NCO will move across town to the beautiful Shea’s Buffalo Theatre for the Performing Arts to present a World Premiere opera entitled “SHOT!” by Persis Vehar about the 1901 Buffalo assassination of Pres. William McKinley. Shea’s, a 3100 seat showplace, is the perfect locale to present a historic story about a pivotal moment in Buffalo’s history and it’s a show no Buffalonian should miss. Over it’s 7 year existence, NCO has garnered artistic praise and financial assistance and everyone involved will work hard to make sure that such success continues for years to come.
