About the Opera Company of Brooklyn: founded in 2000 by conductor Jay Meetze to promote talented young artists, while providing affordable and accessible opera to New York City communities. Known for nurturing the burgeoning careers of young singers, conductors, and pianists, OCB's past performers have gone onto thriving national and international opera careers.

OCB seeks to bring opera to the mainstream public and out of its large and traditionally formal institution. Past venues have included penthouses, art galleries, the Brooklyn Museum of Art, churches, Bargemusic, and the Northside Piers parking garage. The smaller, intimate settings provide the audience with close proximity to the singers, conductor, and musicians thereby, creating an engaging experience for all. The OCB BYOB (Bring Your Own Beverage) series creates a social atmosphere, allowing the audience and performers to interact during intermissions and after performances.

Our innovative and small opera company consists of dedicated unpaid staff, volunteers, and interns working from across the U.S. Our hard work yields results equal to large-budget opera houses, especially in the media. OCB has been featured on the Jeopardy quiz show, Good Morning America, and CNN. Other favorable coverage includes numerous reports on radio: National Public Radio's Day to Day, American Public Media's Marketplace, 1010WINS, WNYC's Overnight Music and Soundcheck, and reviews and articles in: Wall Street Journal, NY Times, NY Daily and NY Post newspapers, NY Magazine, American Record Guide, Opera News Magazine and Crain's New York Business. Metropolitan Opera's "Opera News" magazine named the OCB CD, featuring music by American composer, Thomas Pasatieri "BEST OF THE YEAR".

Maestro Jay Meetze (pronounced Mets) is lauded for his "passionate and undeniably impressive command of performances" and "sympathetic leadership of the forces of the OCB." (Opera News).  In addition, he is the newly appointed Music Director of Atlantic Coast Opera Festival. Upcoming he will record a CD of orchestral music on the CRS label and Pagliacci for Brilliant Classics. Also this season, he has been invited to conduct Berlin's  Philharmonisches Kammerorchester, Rom├ónia's Filarmonica de Stat Arad, Russia's Orchestra of Nizhny Novgorod and China is considering a December tour of OCB lead singers performing Mozart in 5-10 cities with Chinese orchestras and choruses.
