About the New York Chinese Opera Society
The New York Chinese Opera Society, Inc. (NYCOS) is a nonprofit organization consisting of volunteers, opera admirers, trained artists, and musicians. We believe and appreciate that Chinese Opera, with its known historical significance, is an important and integral part of Chinese heritage. This art form that is so richly rooted in our culture is sorely in need of our support before it becomes a lost art. We also believe that through the efforts of organizations such as ours, the traditions of Chinese Opera, with its distinct style of music, singing, instrumentation and staging, can be preserved and enhanced.
