Meet Pittsburgh Opera's 2019-20 Resident Artists at our free Rising Stars Concert, a RADical Days event! You'll be up close and personal in the intimate George R. White Studio at Pittsburgh Opera headquarters, 2425 Liberty Avenue in the Strip District.

The Resident Artists will be introducing themselves through an audition format with one of their favorite arias, followed by an aria chosen by General Director Christopher Hahn, Music Director Antony Walker, and Managing Director Bill Powers. After, you'll have the chance to join in on the fun! The audience gets to vote on which Resident Artist is brought back out for the final aria. Mingle with the artists afterwards.

This free event is very popular. Please RSVP online, or call 412-281-0912 ext. 215. Doors open at 5:00 PM. The program begins at 6:00 PM.
