From the Lab

Opera Philadelphia is leading the field in the development of new opera. Our American Repertoire Program, a commitment to produce a new American work over ten seasons, currently has seven new operas in development. We have the world’s most comprehensive Composer in Residence program, made possible by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, with talented composers Lembit Beecher, Missy Mazzoli, and Andrew Norman each with us for several years of intensive, hands-on work to develop an understanding of the many facets of developing and producing opera.  Learn more about the programs happening in the Lab of Opera Philadelphia:
