Opera Philadelphia

General Director's Council

Opera is Best Heard and Scene

General Director's Council

We make magic with what you make possible.

During this challenging time, support from members of the General Directors Council allows us to continue to provide meaningful opportunities for artistic development through the Opera Philadelphia Channel while providing a critical bridge as we work through this period when we cannot be together in the theater. Your support also ensures that our educational and community programs continue – virtually now, and in classrooms, theaters, and technical production shops in the future.
