Opera Philadelphia

Opening Night Gala

Add this special event to your Turandot experience

A provocative, passionate 2016-2017 opera season awaits you! And on Friday, September 23, 2016, we will kick-off the Season in style with an Opening Night Gala that is not to be missed.

Please join in the celebration of Opera Philadelphia at this spectacular event that includes a pre-performance dinner and after-party surrounding a kaleidoscopic production of Puccini's Turandot.

This year's Opening Night Gala will take place in the heart of Philadelphia at Dilworth Park where the evening will begin at 5:00 p.m. with cocktails and an elegant dinner. Following dinner, guests will be transported to the Academy of Music for Puccini's Turandot, featuring powerhouse soprano Christine Goerke in the title role alongside tenor Marco Berti, soprano Joyce El-Khoury, and bass Morris Robinson. The festivities will continue with an after-party with the cast and creative team back at Dilworth Park under the stars and lights of City Hall. Join us!

  • 8:00 p.m. - Opening night performance of Puccini's Turandot at the Academy of Music
  • 10:30 p.m. - After-party with the cast in a tented ballroom at Dilworth Park
