Pittsburgh, PA…On Monday, August 26, Pittsburgh Opera offers single tickets to the public for its 75th anniversary season. Opening October 12 with the grandest of all grand operas, Verdi’s Aida, the Pittsburgh Opera season includes three beloved works and three bold new operas, with three of this season’s offerings sung in English. Following Aida in the season are Mozart’s The Magic Flute, Nico Muhly’s Dark Sisters, Gregory Spears’s Paul’s Case, Puccini’s La bohème, and Philip Glass’s Orphée. Single tickets start at $12 and are available at www.pittsburghopera.org, 412-456-6666, or at Theater Square Box Office, 665 Penn Avenue, in the Cultural District.

Pittsburgh Opera thanks the Jack Buncher Foundation for a special offer that also opens August 26: $5 kids’ tickets to the Tuesday, November 12 performance of The Magic Flute at the Benedum Center. Those who wish to bring kids or grandkids (ages 6-12) to the Tuesday 7:00 p.m. performance of Mozart’s The Magic Flute may purchase up to four kids’ tickets at $5 each with the purchase of a full-price adult ticket. The Buncher Foundation sponsors the offer, which is available in all Benedum seating areas except Price Zone A. Available by web, phone, or in person, the offer is good until October 31, 2013 or while supplies last.

Pittsburgh Opera celebrates its 75th anniversary in 2013-14 with OPERA FOR A NEW AGE, a season of three beloved favorites and three bold new operas. Established by five intrepid women in 1939, Pittsburgh Opera is viewed as one of the most vibrant opera organizations in the U.S., with a rich artistic tradition, outstanding educational programs, an acclaimed artist training program, and a progressive outlook toward the future. Its green initiative culminated in LEED® Silver certification for its Strip District headquarters, and its capacity as a true community partner has increased significantly under General Director Christopher Hahn’s leadership. Tickets for the 2013-2014 season start at just $12.
