Pittsburgh Opera

Christopher Hahn, General Director

Antony Walker, Music Director

Begun in 1939 as the Pittsburgh Opera Society, Pittsburgh Opera is the eighth oldest company in the United States and draws on a rich legacy of music-making. Among the many luminaries who have sung at Pittsburgh Opera are Luciano Pavarotti, Beverly Sills, Joan Sutherland, Sherrill Milnes, and Stephanie Blythe. The company’s first conductor, Richard Karp of Vienna, led Pittsburgh Opera for nearly 40 years and oversaw the company’s move to Heinz Hall in 1971.

In 2008, Christopher Hahn was unanimously appointed General Director and has vigorously upheld Pittsburgh Opera’s high standards of management and artistic excellence, while spearheading the move to Pittsburgh Opera’s new headquarters in the historic George Westinghouse Air Brake Factory at 2425 Liberty Avenue, in Pittsburgh’s Strip District.

The new facility has provided Pittsburgh Opera with the space to house the resources needed to better prepare for performances at the Benedum, while opening up a whole new way for the community to experience all the artistry that is part of opera. In an effort to maintain the Company’s mission to enrich Pittsburgh and the tri-state area, the Opera has committed to the use of sustainable methods in the renovation and maintenance of the new headquarters, striving to obtain a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Operations and Maintenance Certification in early 2010.
