Pittsburgh Opera proudly presents our 2023-24 Resident Artists.

These stellar artists were hand-selected after a grueling and competitive application and audition process

During the course of the 2023-24 Season, these talented individuals will perform:

  • The principal and supporting roles in the fully-staged Pittsburgh Opera productions 
  • Supporting roles, covering, and sometimes principal roles in Pittsburgh Opera's mainstage productions
  • In programs for public schools, community centers, libraries and corporate events
  • In regular Song Shop concerts, free programs, and special events 
  • At parties hosted by Pittsburgh Opera

We invite you to get to know our 2023-24 Resident Artist class:
