Opera Philadelphia thanks the many artists represented by the American Guild of Musical Artists (AGMA), the American Federation of Musicians (AFM) Local 77, and the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE) Local 8 and 799, whose talents bring opera to life. The current public health crisis has resulted in significant loss of work and income for artists and craftspersons. In addition to supporting Opera Philadelphia, we hope you will also consider supporting the AGMA Relief Fund and the Philadelphia Musicians Relief Fund.
