Friday night, center stage at the Academy of Music, Opera Philadelphia opens its season with a big man, who has a big voice.
Opera Philadelphia presents, ‘Nabucco.’ Company President David Devan says it’s an old, well-known story.
Opera Philadelphia will perform “Powder Her Face” from June 7th through the 16th at the Perelman Theater at the Kimmel Center.
They came from city schools, Philly suburban schools and even South Jersey to see the dress rehearsal of Opera Philadelphia’s production of Mozart’s “The Magic Flute” at the Academy of Music.
For the first time ever, the Philadelphia Orchestra and Opera Philadelphia will collaborate on a production which will be presented in 2014.
“We’ve been working very hard to put opera in the city,” says general director David Devan, “and that can mean a whole bunch of things in terms of where we perform.”
