Many opera companies open their seasons in a grand manner, but only Pittsburgh Opera has a tradition as long and glorious as the Diamond Horseshoe Ball.

Featuring a cocktail reception, performances by the much-loved Resident Artists of Pittsburgh Opera, live and silent auctions, and dancing through the night, the Diamond Horseshoe Ball is not to be missed. This year’s festivities will take place under the same gleaming chandeliers of the Grand Ballroom at the historic Omni William Penn Hotel where the very first Diamond Horseshoe Ball was held. It is sure to be an event to remember! 

The evening's festivities include:

  • 6:30 PM Cocktails
  • 7:30 PM Dinner
  • Silent and Live Auctions
  • Performance by our Resident Artists
