In a statement, General Director Michael Capasso said, “We are delighted to return as a part Bryant Park Picnic Performances presented by Bank of America for the 8th consecutive year. Our increasingly elaborate productions have drawn thousands of New Yorkers and tourists for free. It is truly ‘The People’s Opera.’”
