Opera Philadelphia

The Opera creates outstanding productions of both classic and new operatic works that resonate within the community, assembles the finest international creative artists, and presents a wide array of programming that educates, deepens, and diversifies the opera audience in Philadelphia and beyond. Performance offerings include large-scale works at the historic Academy of Music, intimate chamber operas as part of the Aurora Series for Chamber Opera at the Perelman Theater, and frequent community performances which focus on creative partnerships and enhanced accessibility. Under the leadership of General Director David B. Devan, the company has launched the American Repertoire Program, a commitment to produce a new American work in each of ten seasons, and the nation’s first collaborative Composer In Residence Program with New York’s Gotham Chamber Opera and Music-Theatre Group.
