Welcome to the Art of Opera
Roman Borgman Opera Theatre was founded in 2016 as a tribute to the legacy of Bulgarian baritone and vocal coach, Roman Borgman. Roman was a loving, spiritual, generous and gentle soul who had a sincere calling to help singers with a genuine care and interest in them and their vocal development.
With a desire for his community to be exposed to and experience the joy of opera, Roman, with the help of his wife Maryann Mootos, developed a successful concert series at Trinity Lutheran Church in Bay Ridge. Maryann then founded the Roman Borgman Opera Theatre determining that this was the best way to continue to honor Roman after his sudden passing in 2016 and to further his legacy and love of opera by continuing to help singers develop their craft, presenting opera concerts throughout Bay Ridge and the greater New York City area.
Our singers have had many years of training and experience to bring you the highest quality performances both vocally and dramatically. Often times it is this inexplicable connection of music and text that leaves us full of emotion in the experience of connecting to something greater than ourselves. Our concerts are also educational in the aim of bringing opera to all communities so that all who listen may understand and experience the inherent beauty of this art form.
