Photos: Opera On The Mall : ‘We Shall Not Be Moved’
Find links from parties I shot this week at the bottom.
Last Saturday Andre Flewellen photographed Opera Philadelphia’s Opera On The Mall : ‘We Shall Not Be Moved’
Here are a few shots he got.
Guests brought their picnic baskets and blankets and enjoyed a FREE, big-screen broadcast of We Shall Not Be Moved!
Now in its eighth year, Opera on the Mall has attracted nearly 30,000 opera fans and newcomers to Independence National Historical Park for an evening of opera under the stars.

This year’s Opera on the Mall pick pulls from a tragic moment in Philadelphia’s past: the 1985 bombing of the black liberation group MOVE in West Philly.
“We Shall Not Be Moved” tells a story of five North Philadelphia teens on the run who find refuge in an abandoned house, which they discover was once the headquarters for the MOVE organization.
Racism, gun violence, police brutality and poverty are timely issues touched on in the performance, which made its world premiere at the Wilma Theater last year.
