Our Mission

Pittsburgh Opera enriches Pittsburgh and the tri-state area and draws national and international attention to the region by:

  • Creating live opera at the highest standards of artistic excellence
  • Making opera accessible to a diverse audience
  • Developing young singers into tomorrow's artists
  • Ensuring the future through responsible fiscal management

The current leader of Pittsburgh Opera is Christopher Hahn, who became Artistic Director in 2000 and General Director in 2008. During his tenure he has considerably expanded the company's repertoire to include Baroque and many contemporary works, and he has vigorously upheld Pittsburgh Opera's high standards of management and artistic excellence. He has expanded the Resident Artist Program to include two annual productions, both of which are offered as part of the full subscription series. He led the move to Pittsburgh Opera's new headquarters in the historic George Westinghouse Air Brake Factory at 2425 Liberty Avenue, in Pittsburgh's Strip District, and developed a range of audience and community programs that take place there.

Pittsburgh Opera's current Music Director, Antony Walker, was appointed in 2005 and has brought an engaged and highly informed leadership to the company's musical forces as well as developing a music staff of note.
