2019: (Tie) Brooklyn Voted Regina Opera Company Best Concert Venue!
Regina Opera Company
5902 6th Ave.

Founded in 1970 by Marie Cantoni and Nicholas Tierno, Regina Opera began as a small group of dedicated singers who gave opera recitals, with piano accompaniment, in a tiny auditorium at the Regina Pacis-St. Rosalia Parish Youth Center in Borough Park/Dyker Heights, Brooklyn. The following year, they produced an abridged staged version of La Traviata with piano accompaniment. In 1976, they began performing on the larger stage at Regina Hall (the auditorium of Regina Pacis School), and acquired an orchestra in 1982. In 2008, a grant enabled them to begin providing supertitles. And in 2012, they moved to a wonderful new home, Our Lady of Perpetual Help School auditorium, whose more professional stage facilities and comfortable audience amenities inaugurated a great new era in Regina Opera’s history.
