Filmed on September 30, 2020 at a masked and socially-distanced concert in Dilworth Park next to Philadelphia City Hall, the program includes chorus performances like “Belle nuit” (Barcarolle) from Offenbach’s The Tales of Hoffman, “L’amour est un oiseau rebelle” (Habanera) from Bizet’s Carmen, and “Libiamo ne’ lieti calici” (Libiamo) from Verdi’s La traviata. With a running theme of “love in all its forms,” the series includes selections from Broadway favorites and opera arias.
