Internship Opportunities

For SummerFest 2016, Opera Theater of Pittsburgh will offer summer internships in administrative and technical areas. Our internship program provides the opportunity for young professionals and students to experience first-hand the fast-paced world of repertory opera and music theater.

Internships offer a high level of responsibility and the chance to work directly with a small team of seasoned professionals. Interns are able to make real contributions to the way the organization functions and have opportunities to meet peers from other institutions. All summer interns receive a stipend, or work-study positions for local candidates at participating institutions.  All interns work towards the preparation and running of SummerFest, the company's opera, musical theater, and recital festival, which performs during the four weeks of July each year at the Twentieth Century Club in Oakland.

Interns are engaged for a period of five to ten weeks, with some positions beginning in early-June. Housing is provided as available. Self-provided transportation is an advantage. Interns will receive a weekly stipend, and a flexible schedule is necessary for some internship tracks. Interns must be able to legally work in the United States. 

You may apply for more than one internship position; please complete a separate application for each internship you wish to be considered for.

To apply, or to see detailed information on scope of work, time-frame, stipends, etc. for all available internship positions, please visit either the ADMINISTRATION INTERNSHIPS or PRODUCTION INTERNSHIPS pages.
