  • The Passion of Scrooge is back!

    Starting November 4, the Opera Philadelphia Channel began streaming The Passion of Scrooge as the inaugural title in its “Opera Philadelphia Presents” series. It’s an exciting way to reach new audiences on their innovative new platform that has big ambitions, to become “the Netflix of opera” for this fledgling hybrid art form. With sincere thanks to Opera Philadelphia, we welcome you to subscribe at operaphila.tv as another way to watch director H. Paul Moon’s critically-acclaimed adaptation of Jon Deak’s masterpiece.

    In a timely pas de deux with the Opera Philadephia Channel’s presentation, the 21st Century Consort, which premiered the work and recorded the version being streamed, will present a live performance on Saturday, December 3rd, 5:00pm at historic St. Mark’s Episcopal Church on Capitol Hill. William Sharp will again star as Scrooge et al., and the Consort, conducted by Christopher Kendall, will fill out the cast. 

    The performance is part of a program called “A Ghost Story of Christmas” pairing Jon Deak’s holiday favorite with Jamaican-British composer Eleanor Alberga’s provocative “Dancing with the Shadow.” We hope you’ll join us for our renewal of the great English ghost storytelling tradition!
