How will you celebrate O18?

Last year’s Inaugural Festival O began with a gala and turned into a week-long celebration that immersed the city in opera. This year, Opera Philadelphia cordially invites you to kick-off the opening of O18 with not one, but three unique parties to add onto your performance tickets and enhance your festival experience. Celebrate three different opening nights with the cast and creative teams and keep the party going long after the curtain has come down.
