Pittsburgh Festival Opera is thrilled to announce that once again we’ve been offered a matching donation this summer. All gifts made to The Ring Fund between now and August 1, 2018 will be doubled!

Ringleader card

You can pave the way to Valhalla with a donation to the Ring Fund of Pittsburgh Festival Opera this summer. Your gift will have twice the impact because of this limited-time match.

Ring Leaders receive exclusive perks throughout the duration of the Ring Cycle. Perks vary by performance and may include:

  • Free drinks
  • Companion tickets
  • Party passes
  • Concession discounts
  • And more!


If you aren't a Ring Leader, become one with a donation of $100 or more; current Ring Leaders: don't forget to bring your Ring Leader card to the opera this summer to enjoy exclusive perks!

Patrons donating at the $1,000 level or greater will receive two tickets to a private dress rehearsal of The Valkyrie in 2019.

Ring Leaders making gifts each year of the The Ring Cycle will receive special recognition in the program.
