Festival: Festival O

Biography

September 18th - 28th, 2019

“Opera in Philadelphia really can claim to offer something for everyone.” (The Washington Post)

Launching its past two annual seasons with the groundbreaking Festival O has firmly established Opera Philadelphia not only as “one of North America’s premiere generators of valid new operas” (Opera News), but as “one of American opera’s success stories” (New York Times). Now the company steps boldly into 2019-2020 with the third edition of its festival, O19, which comprises two world premieres, two company premieres, and a series of special presentations, events, and recitals at multiple venues across the city in September. Next, the season spotlights renowned Jack Mulroney Music Director Corrado Rovaris, who leads three productions at the Academy of Music to mark the 20th anniversary of his company debut.

With a lineup of rarely staged classics, new commissions, and stimulating artistic partnerships, the 2019-20 season underscores Opera Philadelphia’s status as “a hotbed of operatic innovation”. (New York Times)
