Maecenas Returns!

Pittsburgh Opera’s 38th annual season-ending fundraising gala, Maecenas XXXVIII, returns on April 15, 2023 with Enchantment in the Garden.

Pittsburgh Opera's signature fundraiser gala Maecenas is the social event not to be missed. It is hailed by SEEN as “one of the best black tie galas in town” and by the Tribune Review as one of Pittsburgh’s top parties of the year. Named for Gaius Maecenas, the wealthy Roman statesman and cultural patron, the Maecenas gala has developed a reputation for a spectacular environment and great entertainment.
