This was an excellent production of a very interesting opera. The voices were very good. The set and staging were inventive and quite interesting. This Opera Company is doing more and more interesting things. Go.

Beautiful theater and incredible performance! The Philadelphia opera, the oldest North American theater still in use, is a must-see.

Opera Philadelphia - think outstanding performers, forward thinking leadership and creative set designers. The Academy of Music - think classic grand opera house, cozy seats and intimate setting.

Walking into the hall is like entering a central Europe dream world. So beautiful. The opera was fine, professional voices, clever production, terrific orchestra. We loved the crowd too, the classic opera scene of suits, some bowties, fine dresses, jazzy jewels; this is the place...More
