Pittsburgh, PA…Pittsburgh Opera’s upcoming production of Mozart’s Don Giovanni inspired a winning partnership between the opera company and Venture Outdoors. Don Giovanni, the unrepentant rogue of the Don Juan legend, has an important scene in a cemetery and is visited by a graveyard statue in the dramatic finale. What better occasion to collaborate on a tour of Allegheny Cemetery, visiting the graves and hearing stories of some notorious Pittsburgh philanderers buried there? The walking tour will be led by a Pittsburgh Opera guest leader, and is set for Sunday, October 21, beginning at 10:30 a.m. The tour is rated “easy” by Venture Outdoors and registration is now open at the Venture Outdoors website. The Cemetery Walk partnership is made possible by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
Pittsburgh Opera’s 2012-2013 season continues a 74-year tradition of excellence in opera. As part of the Company’s continued efforts to make opera accessible to all members of the community, single tickets for the 2012-2013 season again start at just $10, withsubscriptions starting at just $43 for four operas.
