Pittsburgh Opera presents beloved favorites, rare gems, and free concerts this fall

Pittsburgh Opera kicks off its 2023–24 Season with more than just its mainstage operas. From free and casual events to the glitz and glamour of the full opera experience, Pittsburgh Opera offers a plethora of operatic entertainment this fall for every taste and price point.

Pittsburgh Opera’s fall line-up provides an easy entry point to patrons new to opera. Patrons can experience the thrill of live, grand opera through the beloved classics The Barber of Seville and The Flying Dutchman at the Benedum Center.

For those patrons who just want to test the waters of this age-old art form, free concerts in Market Square as well as at the Bitz Opera Factory present an opportunity to encounter premier artists in a welcoming, intimidation-free environment ripe with well-known accessible music.

The adventurous patron looking for a unique operatic foray can enjoy a night of elegance and entertainment at the Sparkling Speakeasy gala. Pittsburgh Opera strives to make opera accessible to all, and its autumn events present plenty of avenues to enjoyment.
