#### Abstract

We develop deformation theory of algebras over quadratic operads where the parameter space is a commutative local algebra. We also give a construction of a distinguised deformation of an algebra over a quadratic operad with a complete local algebra as its base—the so-called versal deformation—which induces all other deformations of the given algebra.
