Opera Theater of Pittsburgh presents innovative opera, producing American works, reinterpretations of older works, and new works, for the widest possible audience. Opera Theater focuses on diversity in programming and casting, on crossing boundaries and bringing together talents from all the arts, on encouraging new talent, and on broadening audiences through outreach and education, to create a body of work that is original, entertaining, contemporary and relevant.
Free public workshops of our new Eco-Opera, A New Kind of Fallout, take place in venues that matter in terms of preservation of our eco-systems: the Phipps Conservatory, the Pittsburgh Botanic Garden, Rachel Carson's alma mater Chatham University, and the Carrie Blast Furnace, amongst others. Each workshop will present new scenes from the opera—hot off the press—and explore the issues it raises in discussions with the artists.Read More
Put that spare room to good use!
Many of our extraordinary artists are coming to Pittsburgh from other cities around the country and the world, and need housing while in residence at SummerFest. By opening up your home to one or more of these singers or interns, you can provide a safe and comfortable home for an artist while also getting to know one of opera's stars of tomorrow!
