Opera Theater of Pittsburgh is proud to announce its SummerFest 2014 Young Artist Program: a combined professional training and performing program that takes place in Pittsburgh for four to six weeks from mid June – July 27, 2014, as part of Opera Theater’s summer festival activities. It is intended for Resident, Featured, Young and Apprentice Artists (singers, pianists and stage directors) with opportunities for solo performance for all participants.
Like most of the performing arts, audiences generally only see the final product when they attend an opera performance. But before the curtain ever goes up, numerous people have been working for countless hours (weeks!) (months!)—learning vocal parts, designing sets and costumes, preparing orchestrations, etc.
Here’s your chance to step backstage and witness the process. Think of us as a good friend with a backstage pass, and we’ll give you the inside scoop on how it all happens. Use our handy form to ask your own question.
Working from a belief that singing provides an extraordinary method through which one can learn letters ("Now I know my ABCs..."), numbers, and more, Opera Theater's educational programs introduce students to voice types, rhythms, melodies, and movements, which combine to create vivid characters and exciting drama. We're now scheduling performances for local area schools for Winter 2016.
Through our Opera Tots program, many children in Pittsburgh schools have their first experiences with opera.
