The Marriage of Figaro, 2010

Students and education professionals can save money on Pittsburgh Opera tickets in three ways:

  • Student Rush
  • CheapSeats
  • Group Discounts

Student Rush – Half Price Seats!

Starting 2 hours before every performance, students with valid school ID can go to the Benedum Center Box Office and purchase up to two tickets for any available seats for half price.


CheapSeats are the easy and affordable way for students, faculty, and staff at our partner colleges and universities to enjoy great opera. Discounts range from 50% to 75% for select seating in either the Main Floor or the Balcony. 

Pitt Arts is our CheapSeats partner for the University of Pittsburgh. In addition to online ordering, members of the Pitt community can go to Pitt Arts, 9th Floor, William Pitt Union, and fill out a CheapSeats order form. For Pitt Arts information, go to their office, call them at 412-624-4498, or visit Pitt Arts. 

Please contact Randy Adams, 412-281-0912, ext. 213 if your college is not on the CheapSeats partner list.

  • Please note that CheapSeats are intended for individual use. You can purchase no more than 5 tickets per performance. Be sure to select your school from the list: CheapSeats partner schools receive special benefits based on their ticket sales.
  • Pittsburgh Opera reserves the right to verify your affiliation with the partner school whose offer you select. If you are not affiliated with that school, your order may be cancelled and you may be prohibited from participating in the Cheap Seats program.

Get a Group Together for Special Discounts

Groups of 6 or more students, faculty, and staff can get great group prices and all the benefits of traditional groups. Contact Randy Adams for more information.
