During a Brown Bag concert, you bring the snacks and we bring the entertainment at our Pittsburgh Opera Headquarters. Once a month (excluding February and April) during our season, Pittsburghers and visitors of all ages are invited to enjoy free intimate noontime concerts. Our Pittsburgh Opera Resident Artists perform some of opera’s most popular arias, as well as a mix of Broadway, musical theater and other surprises.

These concerts are a wonderful opportunity for an informal introduction to opera.

Our October, November, and December Brown Bag performances will be virtual! Please check back with our online calendar for updates on changes and safety precautions. When we can safely return to live shows, guests can even meet the performers after the performances! Doors will open at 11:30am for those live events.
