At Pittsburgh Festival Opera, we love to celebrate the opening of a new production, and invite you to join us at Opening Night Parties immediately following the first performance of each of our mainstage opera and musicals. Visit with friends and meet the cast and crew of each production over a glass of wine and some delectable nibbles. There might also be a bit of cabaret singing and other unexpected surprises!
