Philadelphia Museum of Art
2600 Benjamin Franklin Parkway, Philadelphia, PA 19130
Philadelphia's landmark art museum has its origins in the Centennial Exhibition of 1876, as the exhibition's gallery in Memorial Hall at Fairmount Park. In the 140 years since, its collection has grown to fill its iconic Main Building, as well as the Perelman Building, the Rodin Museum, the Historic Houses of Fairmount Park and Fleisher Art Memorial. No trip to Philadelphia is complete without a stop at its famous facade. Opera Philadelphia and the Philadelphia Museum of Art have partnered to present War Stories, a double bill of Monteverdi's Il combattimento de Tancredi e Clorinda and Lembit Beecher's I Have No Stories to Tell You, in September 2017 during the O17 festival.
