The Opera Company is the star tenant of the Academy of Music, and benefited in 2002 from a renovation that restored the theater to her original glory as a premier opera house. English translations are projected in superscript above the stage. The company presents four fully staged operas a year, mostly classics like La Bohème, Falstaff, and Porgy and Bess. In 2011, the company performed the American première of Phaedra.
