Spotlight: East Passyunk Opera Project — Thursday, Dilworth Park
Itching for some opera, though the season hasn’t started yet? East Passyunk Opera Project and Opera Philadelphia will be co-presenting a free performance right in the center of Center City, on Dilworth Park’s Center Stage. You likely know Opera Philadelphia already; ePOP focuses on community performances, featuring many Philly-based singers. This show will feature some of opera’s greatest hits sung by soprano Aubry Ballarò, mezzos Taylor-Alexis Dupont and Kathryn Leemhuis, tenor John Viscardi, and baritone Jorell Williams, with pianist Aurelien Eulert.
Aug. 24 at 6 p.m., Dilworth Park, 1 S. 15th Street, free; more information.
