About Opera Philadelphia

Opera Philadelphia is committed to embracing innovation and developing opera for the 21st century. Our mission:

    • Delivering outstanding productions of traditional and new repertoire that engage our public and propel our genre forward.
    • Identifying extraordinary artists, both established and emerging, and provide opportunities for them to create their most imaginative and inspired work.
    • Presenting innovative programming relevant to the multi-cultural Philadelphia region that broadens and diversifies the opera audience.

Commitment to Racial Equity

Opera Philadelphia acknowledges that our varying experiences with and participation in systems of power and privilege make conversations about race, racism, and oppression complex. We commit to continuing the work to create an inclusive company culture that aims to be free of discrimination, bigotry, and hate speech. We will work as a community to develop new inclusive anti-oppressive policies that aim to provide solutions to dismantling oppressive and discriminating systems within opera and the world. Opera Philadelphia is prepared to fulfill this responsibility and to counter the voices advocating racist views and moral inadequacies based on race. In addition, we commit to a process to examining our mission to ensure that it promotes inclusive and equitable operations at every level of the organization.
