Delaware Valley Opera Company Presents
A MIDSUMMER’S NIGHT at the Opera–“ SOME LIKE IT HOT!”
Don’t miss this intimate concert of tantalizing love duets from well-known operas such as Porgy and Bess, Manon, I Pagliacci, La Boheme, and Madame Butterfly by some of the Delaware Valley’s finest singers.  

The Delaware Valley Opera Company (DVOC) was founded in 1979 to give Delaware Valley singers an opportunity to perform in a professional company while keeping ticket prices low to offer opera to an ever expanding audience.  It has maintained this mission throughout its 37 years.  Currently, DVOC performs its Summer Festival (The Merry Wives of Windsor, Cosi fan tutte, and Lucia de Lammermoor) at the Venice Island Performing Arts and Recreation Center in Manayunk.

Ayurveda, translated as " The science of life," is an ancient method of healing primarily focused on increasing health and vitality through the foods we eat.  A  holistic method of wellness that looks at the entire individual, Ayurveda is easy to customize and implement in daily life. We will look at how to selectively choose foods, activities, and daily routines that suit your own physical makeup (dosha), and in doing so, create a personalized blueprint of your own path to wholeness!
With instructor Matt Mitlas.
