Opera Set’s Chance at a Second Life!

Opera Philadelphia is known for identifying extraordinary artists, both established and emerging, and providing opportunities for them to create their most imaginative and inspired work. They recently shared their incredible vision with The Resource Exchange and donated these one of a kind pieces! A recent production, Written on Skin, written by Martin Crimp and composed by George Benjamin, had stunning blue and gold tones throughout the set. Thank you Opera Philadelphia for your donation and for giving these scenery pieces a chance to have a second life in Philadelphia art!
