The Pittsburgh Opera was founded in 1939, and throughout its history, the company has featured such legends as Luciano Pavarotti, Beverly Sills, and Joan Sutherland in its productions. And with the well-respected Pittsburgh Opera Resident Artist Program, the Opera is seeing to it that new generations of singers are being trained to become the stars of tomorrow. The Pittsburgh Opera also runs a number of other educational programs, such as High School Apprentices (career discussions and coaching sessions for young opera hopefuls) and Opera Opportunity reduced-price tickets for students.
