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.
Opera Theater offers diverse volunteer opportunities throughout the year, especially leading up to and during the SummerFest. Volunteers are integral to a smoothly run festival and enable Opera Theater to meet its mission. We look for students and adults to assist in the office, on education and outreach programs, during dress rehearsals, performances, and throughout the year. And you’ll never be alone; Opera Theater staff provides training and guidance for all volunteers, and volunteers receive complimentary admission to events.Read More
