VOTE NOW for your favorite aria!


Pittsburgh Opera hosts its annual Rising Stars concert in the Opera’s Strip District headquarters. Rising Stars, a RADical Days event, is the community’s first opportunity to meet the incoming Pittsburgh Opera Resident Artists. This performance is free and open to everyone.

At Rising Stars, each Resident Artist first performs a selection of his or her own choosing, followed by one chosen by General Director Christopher Hahn. A final aria to conclude the concert is selected by the audience.
