Adult Programming

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

Sign up for our email newsletter, E-notes, which delivers up-to-the-minute information right to your email inbox.

With all these events and more, the Community Programs Department wants to ensure 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! 

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 all the operas you see this season.

Opera at the Movies

Opera Philadelphia's Community Programs Department partners with Bryn Mawr Film Institute to present the HD European Opera Series.  The Opera will provide introductory remarks at select Sunday film screenings. Occasionally, the company also screens films which are thematically related to the season's repertoire.
