Ospite Circle: A National Council

Join a national community of fellow opera lovers.

Our historic city presents a welcoming travel destination for opera enthusiasts from across the country and around the globe.

To serve our audience from beyond the Philadelphia area, Opera Philadelphia created a national council, the Ospite Circle, to welcome our out-of-town guests to connect through shared experiences and curated events. Pronounced "AW-spi-tay," this Italian word conveys two special meanings—both 'host' and 'guest'—and serves as an invitation to those who share our bold vision for the future of our art form.

If you are interested in learning more about the events and activities planned for out-of-town audiences, please contact Steven Humes, Associate Director of Audience Development, at 215.893.5903 or at humes@operaphila.org.
