Description

Since its formation in 1975, the Opera Company of Philadelphia has been the premier opera-producing organization in the Greater Philadelphia area. OCP presents five performances of three productions each year in the historic Academy of Music, the oldest opera house in America still in use for its original purpose. In 2009, OCP expanded its Season through the addition of the Opera at the Perelman Series, featuring two productions of cutting-edge contemporary works in the Kimmel Center's Perelman Theater each year, with one in a collaborative partnership with the Curtis Institute of Music.
