Run Time: 60 mins

Venue: The Bagel Place, THE INTERNET (Digital Shows), Saint Mary's Church


The Perspective Collective and Opera on Tap present a performance of contemporary opera about contemporary themes. 

For Love of Country: 

“They will take our freedom from our cold dead hands…” Desperate to save their cause, an aging patriot and his ambitious spokeswoman turn to a suspiciously foreign-sounding graduate student. This contemporary opera combines themes from America, Russia, love, politics, loyalty, and betrayal.


Opera on Tap:

devoted love, support, and defense of one’s country; national loyalty

an act of giving up something valued for the sake of something else regarded as more important
or worthy.

Opera on Tap Philadelphia explores the many perspectives of American patriotism and the accompanying
sacrifices made through American Art Song.
