Corporate Support

Become a Festival Sponsor! When your corporation or business becomes a sponsor of Opera Theater's Summer Festival you gain valuable, highly-focused recognition and exposure. And your company, clients and employees receive significant additional tangible benefits. With recognition at a time of year when other organizations are not competing for attention, you’ll gain market exposure with wide-ranging audiences, including a large percentage of families and professionals with disposable income.

Educational programs are 90% corporate tax deductible

You can also dedicate all or a portion of your sponsorship towards our Young Artist Program, or to education and outreach programs for Pittsburgh’s underserved communities. Up to 90% of the amount of your sponsorship for educational programs can be set against corporate taxes.

I have always believed that opera is a planet where the muses work together, join hands, and celebrate all the arts.
     —Franco Zeffirelli
