Welcome to Opera Theater of Pittsburgh
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.
Intimate. Innovative. SummerFest 2016 is five weeks of operas and musicals sung in English, a children's opera, vocal recitals, and more! The season begins June 22nd with performances of Carmen the Gypsy in unique and intimate venues in Oakland, West End, and Sewickley, and then continues in the newly-renovated Falk Auditorium on the campus of Winchester Thurston School in Shadyside from July 8–24. Save now with season passports, tickets packages and group tickets!
Be an Usher
Opera Theater is always looking for volunteers to act as USHERS for all performances. Ushers serve as the friendly face that greets opera-goers before performances, assisting with tickets, seating location, etc.
Adopt a Singer
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!
