Caesar's Campaigns in Pittsburgh
Hail Andrey! Opera Theater SummerFest is planning a brand new production of Handel’s Julius Caesar to showcase Andrey Nemzer in the title role. The lovely Lara Lynn McGill will be his Cleopatra, accompanied by the superb players of Chatham Baroque, and Walter Morales will conduct and play continuo. And with them Andrey will create, in a great ‘first’ for Pittsburgh, the role that the Met hired him to cover should David Daniels meet an untimely end in the senate: Julius Caesar!

Day of Giving 2016
Your support crashed the internet!
As you may be aware, the Day of Giving platform was overwhelmed with the generosity of thousands of good people trying to support their favorite organizations, and the system was taken off-line. But you can still support Opera Theater!
