About the Confucius Institute of Chinese Opera

The Confucius Institute of Chinese Opera at Binghamton University (CICO) is a nonprofit organization jointly formed by Binghamton University and the National Academy of Chinese Theatre Arts, and is sponsored by the Confucius Institute Headquarters in Beijing China. As all Confucius Institutes around the world, the CICO teaches Chinese language and culture. As a specialized Confucius Institute, however, it also focuses on promoting Chinese opera and music. In addition to offering courses on the Binghamton campus, the CICO organizes lectures, workshops and various other activities. It also established the only performance group in the United States to feature Beijing opera, which plays a major role in the promotion of Chinese opera, performing arts and culture on college campuses and in communities nation wide.
