Pittsburgh Opera is looking for Student Ambassadors for the 2019-20 season! See below.
Become a Student Ambassador!
Now is a perfect time to become a Student Ambassador, spreading the word about Pittsburgh Opera and enjoying exclusive benefits! 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, and a progressive outlook toward the future that we want you to be a part of.
Even if you don’t know much about opera (yet!), if you’re outgoing and enthusiastic then we’d love to work with you. For those interested in a career in arts marketing or education, becoming a Student Ambassador is great opportunity to gain firsthand experience while enhancing your resume. Student Ambassadors will be asked to hang posters on campus and to be a presence at campus fairs/events. Most importantly, we want to hear YOUR ideas about how best to share Pittsburgh Opera with your fellow students.
As a Pittsburgh Opera Student Ambassador, you’ll receive:
- Complimentary tickets to Opening Night of each of our Benedum Center productions
- Free admission to our Opera Up Close programs, which offer an in-depth look at the upcoming production with the artists that make them happen
- Networking opportunities with your fellow Student Ambassadors and arts professionals.
Please contact us via email letting us know why you would make a great Ambassador and an example of how you’d like to promote the opera on campus. We look forward to hearing from you!
The Pittsburgh Opera Internship Program seeks mutually beneficial relationships with individual interns who are interested in opera, whether from an artistic or an organizational perspective. Each intern will be provided with opportunities to be creative, to accomplish real-life work that furthers the mission of Pittsburgh Opera, and to develop personally and professionally. In return, Pittsburgh Opera will receive valuable assistance that contributes significantly to the organization’s goals.
Internships run at various times throughout the year and are available in several areas, including development, artistic, production, and education.
To apply for an internship, please send a letter of intent, resume, and a letter of reference from an academic advisor to:
Kristin Gatch, Executive Assistant

Pittsburgh, PA 15222
No phone calls, please.
