Opera Philadelphia presents O17, a groundbreaking operatic experience featuring seven operatic happenings staged over the course of twelve days in six venues across the city. This unprecedented civic experiment transforms Philadelphia into an urban stage, where diverse audiences gather to share an experience and amplify human connectedness. "Elizabeth Cree" is a new chamber opera based on a novel by Peter Ackroyd. et in London in the 1880s, this highly suspenseful and theatrical opera interweaves several narratives: the trial of the titular heroine for the poisoning of her husband; a series of brutal murders committed by a Jack the Ripper-style killer; the spirited world of an English music hall; and, finally, some "guest appearances" by luminaries from the Victorian Age. Elizabeth Cree is a work that combines the factual with the fictive and the historical with the imaginary.
