LOVE in the Park
Enjoy the talents of the Opera Philadelphia Chorus in this five-episode series, in which 16 singers under the direction of Chorus Master Elizabeth Braden and accompanied by pianist Grant Loehnig perform beloved opera arias and choruses alongside musical theater selections.
Filmed on September 30, 2020 at a masked and socially-distanced concert in Dilworth Park next to Philadelphia City Hall, the program includes chorus performances like “Belle nuit” (Barcarolle) from Offenbach’s The Tales of Hoffman, “L’amour est un oiseau rebelle” (Habanera) from Bizet’s Carmen, and “Libiamo ne’ lieti calici” (Libiamo) from Verdi’s La traviata. With a running theme of “love in all its forms,” the series includes selections from Broadway favorites and opera arias.
All five episodes of "LOVE in the Park" will premiere on Friday Dec. 11, 2020 and will be available for unlimited on-demand viewing for Season Pass holders through May 31, 2021. The series is also available to rent for a seven-day period for $15. Visit operaphila.tv for details.
