November 12th: 11/12/1941

On November 12, 1941, Mary Cardwell Dawson established the National Negro Opera Company (NNOC) in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The NNOC’s first performance was a production of Aida, held at Pittsburgh’s Syria Mosque in October 1941. The NNOC quickly grew from a training ground for black classical arts performers and musicians to a host organization for the classical music elite. The NNOC was not the first black opera company in existence, as several other companies had been established during the late 19th and early 20th centuries, however, these companies did not enjoy the NNOC’s longevity. In 2007 the NNOC’s first home was designated a historic landmark by the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission, and was the subject of an Emmy-nominated documentary featured on Pittsburgh’s public television network. Watch this video about the history of the National Negro Opera Company https://youtu.be/q3TxB-S9VtQ
