Even when every seat in the house sells out, this dazzling blend of theatrical, orchestral, and vocal splendor requires considerable philanthropic support from within our community. By becoming a member of the Opera Philadelphia donor family, you can ensure that the star singers, thrilling productions, and engaging community initiatives you have come to expect continue, from behind the scenes to right here in our backyard.
