Adult Programming

Opera Philadelphia's Adult Education Programs give you an in-depth look at the art form you love with popular programs like A Taste of Opera and Opera Overtures, plus events and classes in your community.

Through these events, the Community Programs Department ensures that you get the most out of your operatic experience with us each season.

Please join us for one or more of these events to enhance your appreciation of opera! 

A Taste of Opera

A Taste of Opera showcases each opera this season through musical highlights, panel discussions, and more at venues throughout the city. FREE and open to the general public, A Taste of Opera provides a unique opportunity to enrich your understanding and enjoyment of the season.

Opera Overtures

Opera Overtures is the perfect counterpart to A Taste of Opera. Open to all ticket-holders, these FREE, 30-minute, informal talks are held one hour before every performance and will enhance your appreciation of the production.

Opera at the Movies

Opera Philadelphia's Community Programs Department partners with Bryn Mawr Film Institute to present films which are thematically related to the season's repertoire.
