Opera Philadelphia

Opera on the Mall

Each year, Opera Philadelphia hosts Opera on the Mall, a free opera screening attended by thousands of people in Philadelphia’s Independence National Historic Park.

We Shall Not Be Moved premiered at O17 with seven sold-out performances, then went on to Harlem’s Apollo Theater and Amsterdam’s Opera Forward Festival, where it was presented by Dutch National Opera, and proved that this timely, Philadelphia-based work could also find relevance with the wider international community.

We express our deepest thanks to all of those who provided support for Opera on the Mall through direct contributions and through our crowdfunding campaign.

It is thanks to you that the entire Philadelphia community is invited to attend an HD screening of the opera at September’s Opera on the Mall. Thank you for helping us share free opera with Philadelphia.
