Opera Philadelphia

Join the Community Conversation

By Opera Philadelphia

Members of Philadelphia’s Asian-American community have recently engaged Opera Philadelphia in a meaningful dialogue about racial stereotyping in staging traditional opera. This has not only changed our personal perspectives, but it has also informed our production of Turandot and will continue to inform future artistic practice. As we continue to learn from these discussions, we would also like to open up this dialogue to the community at large. 

We encourage you to add your voice to this important conversation by contributing comments to the essays at operaphila.org/conversations as well as by submitting your own essays on the topic, which we'll post here on the Opera Philadelphia blog.

To have your essay considered, please email your contribution to pr@operaphila.org (.doc, .docx or .PDF file preferred).
