The showcase, which is set to take place at Dilworth Park, was originally scheduled for Sept. 8 at 8 p.m., but was rescheduled due to prognostications of rain.

The opera stars Lisette Oropesa as Violetta, Alek Shrader as Alfredo, and Stephen Powell as Germont in a production by Paul Curran. Corrado Rovaris conducts the Opera Philadelphia Orchestra and Chorus.
