The success of opera lives in many things, including the invisible details. Decisions regarding how the words and music propel the story forward, and how singers interact and embody characters, happen long before an audience ever sees the production. 

A rare exploration of opera in the making, the Double Exposure program creates dual stagings of works-in-progress by the Opera Philadelphia Composers in Residence. This ongoing program allows for experimentation and for composers to see the impact different directors, conductors, and singers have on a piece.
