Reflection & Re-Vision
As a response to the productions in the Opera Philadelphia Channel, this FREE series will look deeper into the genre of opera by exploring both its musical and theatrical elements as well as engage non-musical scholars to gain a better cultural, social, and historical perspective. The Reflection and Re-Vision series includes lectures, round-table discussions, and artist reflections.
