"Valentine's Day is almost here, which means you're bound to see hearts and teddy bears no matter where you look. For those less interested in the candy-coated holiday, the "Love Notes" opera concert is returning to East Passyunk for its second year, with a sour twist.

East Passyunk Opera Project is teaming up with Society Hill Dance Academy and Manatawny Still Works to host "Love Notes 2.0: Sour Notes," with both live and virtual shows throughout Valentine's Day week and weekend. Guests will hear opera performances from some of the best in the business, many of whom have performed at the Metropolitan Opera, Carnegie Hall, and Lincoln Center. Some are Philadelphia natives and will be back in East Passyunk for another holiday celebration about the ups and downs of love and relationships.

If you're looking to stay in, those who purchase a virtual ticket for $25 will receive a private YouTube link that will show a recording of the concert. The video will be available from 7:30 p.m. on Feb. 11 through 11:30 p.m. on Feb. 24.

If you're looking to get out for the holiday weekend, "Love Notes 2.0" is having two live, in-person performances on Feb. 19 at 7 and 9:30 p.m at Society Hill Dance Academy. There are two ticket options available — $35 for general admission, or $50 for VIP, which includes reserved seating near the stage. Both ticket options come with two complimentary cocktails provided by Manatawny Still Works and BackYard Originals..." Read full story
