In addition to Pittsburgh Festival Opera, PFO also stands for Pittsburgh Fashionable Opera!

One of the joys of a summer festival format is an ambience that's perhaps more relaxed than typical 'grand opera.' Many patrons attend performances having come directly from the office, so business attire or business casual is perfectly appropriate. But casual fashions are also perfectly at home.

One recommendation: Winchester Thurston School's air conditioning system has no trouble beating 90 degree days, but some patrons may feel a chill. A sweater or fashionable pashmina makes for a smart accessory.

Still not sure what to wear to one of our upcoming events? Not a problem! Check out some of the styles that patrons have worn to our events. From togas for Julius Caesar to baseball caps for Damn Yankees, we welcome all themed accessories, but consider leaving your Bermuda Shorts for the beach.
