There doesn't seem to be much on the web about this old facility. It was divided into a restaurant and event facility when I visited in 2013. Like many such named facilities, it may not have ever actually hosted any "opera." A local group performing opera scenes there in 2012 speculated that they were the first actual opera production.
I respond when two worlds that don't belong together end up together. That's why the musical could only have been born here: New York is all these little countries sharing a city. All the different rhythms of those different communities is what made the American musical possible. (George C. Wolfe)
