“Love Notes 3: Notes to Self” — opera on East Passyunk Avenue

East Passyunk Opera Project has teamed up with Society Hill Dance Academy and Top Dog Cocktails to present the third opera in their Love Notes series

East Passyunk Opera Project (ePOP) is teaming up with Society Hill Dance Academy and Top Dog Cocktails to present “Love Notes 3: Notes to Self.” This unique experience brings together opera, live performance, visual art, and unique cocktails. Live back-to-back performances will be held at 6:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. on Saturday, January 13, 2024, at Society Hill Dance Academy, 1919 E. Passyunk Avenue.

“Love Notes 3: Notes to Self” is the sequel to “Love Notes,” which premiered virtually in 2021 over the pandemic, and “Love Notes 2.0: Sour Notes,” which premiered in 2022 both virtually and in person.

The Love Notes saga is all about..love. With the original “Love Notes,” ePOP lathered us up with all the best feelings about love. The head in the clouds, mushy-gushy stuff. With “Love Notes 2.0: Sour Notes,” the focus was on the raunchy, the real, the less than ideal, the getting dumped and breaking up.

Now, ePOP is turning it inward. “Love Notes 3: Notes to Self” will take audiences on a journey through music of self-reflection, struggle, and growth, with a dash of levity and laughs along the way.

“An integral part of our purpose is to put a spotlight on the exceptional, world-class artists who make Philadelphia their home,” ePOP General and Artistic Director Katrina Thurman, said in a statement. “We’re delighted to share their work with our community. We’re also thrilled that several of our artists from previous Love Notes concerts are returning and can’t wait to introduce our audiences to some new artists as well.”

Audiences are invited to come to the early show and catch dinner at one of East Passyunk’s neighborhood haunts after, or to enjoy an early meal and join ePOP for the late show. Top Dog Cocktails will provide two complimentary cocktails for each guest over 21 years of age.

Tickets are $35 for general admission and $50 for a VIP ticket to the show. General admission includes two complimentary cocktails and general admission seating (first come, first served). VIP tickets include two complimentary cocktails and reserved seating near the front of the stage. Purchase tickets at www.epopphilly.org.
