Pittsburgh Opera announces its 2020-21 season

Live opera performances will take place in Pittsburgh this coming season. However, in response to on-going COVID-19 uncertainty and concerns, Pittsburgh Opera is modifying the 2020-21 season, the company’s 82nd. Rather than six operas at four different venues, the season will now consist of four operas performed at the George R. White Opera Studio at Pittsburgh Opera’s headquarters in the city’s Strip District.

Each of the four operas are currently scheduled for six performances:

Così fan tutte – 17, 20, 23, 25, 27, 29 October 2020
Soldier Songs – 5, 8, 11, 13, 15, 17 December 2020
Semele – 20, 23, 26, 28 February & 2, 4 March 2021
