These COVID protocols are subject to change, so we encourage you to check this webpage before every event you attend. This page is always up to date with our latest information.
Pittsburgh Opera’s 2023-24 season performances and events are mask-friendly, meaning that anyone who would like to wear a mask is free to do so. We ask that all guests be respectful of one another's choices.
Neither masks nor proof of vaccination are currently required for patrons attending any Pittsburgh Opera performances and events.
Please note that for events taking place at other venues, such as the Benedum Center, Pittsburgh Opera follows the venue’s policies. For example:
- The Barber of Seville (October 2023), The Flying Dutchman (November 2023), and La Traviata (March 2024) all take place at the Benedum Center, which is owned and operated by the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust. The Passion of Mary Cardwell Dawson (April-May 2024) takes place at the Byham, which is also a Cultural Trust venue. The Cultural Trust has a webpage devoted to its COVID policies.
- Iphigénie en Tauride (January 2024) will be performed at the Pittsburgh CAPA School Theater, which is part of the Pittsburgh Public Schools (PPS). PPS has its own policies which are separate from Pittsburgh Opera’s, and which all patrons and Pittsburgh Opera personnel must adhere to. Currently PPS requires masks if Allegheny County is considered to be in a High COVID transmission level, and recommends them in Medium transmission levels. Please check their website for current conditions.
As always, if you feel sick or are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms, we continue to ask that you prioritize your health and the health of others by staying home.
