Chicago City Opera Company

The Chicago City Opera Company was a grand opera company in Chicago, organized from the remaining assets of the bankrupt Chicago Grand Opera Company, that produced four seasons of opera at the Civic Opera House from 1935 to 1939 before it too succumbed to financial difficulties. It was succeeded by the Chicago Opera Company.

MGM actress Betty Jaynes, at age 15, made her debut with the Chicago City Opera Company on December 6, 1936.
