Classical Post Awards 2018 Opera Philadelphia

Under the direction of its general director and president, David B. Devan, Opera Philadelphia has been transformed from a troubled regional opera company into an international taste-maker. Describing the daring and innovation that has come to define the company, the Washington Post called it “the very model of a modern opera company.” Through the introduction in 2017 of Festival O, an annual two-week festival that opens the season with operatic events in various venues throughout the city, the company is bringing the world of opera to the entire city of Philadelphia, partnering with museums, theaters, and institutions to present new works to diverse audiences and re-contextualizing opera all together.
