Opera on the Mall

Presented by PNC Arts Alive

Opera on the Mall is Opera Philadelphia's annual, FREE opera broadcast in the shadow of Independence Hall. Thank you to the 6,000 people who joined us in September 2014 for the HD broadcast of Rossini's boisterous comedy, The Barber of Seville. Stay tuned for more details about Opera on the Mall in 2015!


Opera on the Mall was presented by PNC Arts Alive and was also made possible through the generous support of the William Penn Foundation and the Wyncote Foundation.

PNC Arts Alive is a multi-year, multi-million dollar initiative of the PNC Foundation.  The goal of PNC Arts Alive is to help area residents gain access to the arts and to help arts organizations expand and engage audiences. In 2014, twenty-one organizations were selected for their bold thinking around increasing arts access and engagement. For more information about Opera Philadelphia’s grant and all of the funded programs, visit www.pncartsalive.com.
