Firelei Baez: Bloodlines

May 1 - May 21

Free with museum admission

Tracing the history of social movements in the United States and the Caribbean, Firelei Báez: Bloodlines presents a new body of work by Firelei Báez. Báez, born in Santiago de los Caballeros, Dominican Republic, is inspired by lineages of black resistance and works primarily with large-scale drawings on paper, making connections that further our understanding of dispersed groups.

Bloodlines showcases paintings and drawings depicting textiles, hair designs, and body ornaments, linking symbols of power with human gestures. The work is labor intensive, delicate, rich in color, and presents female subjects as strongly connected to both a past and present understanding of race. In several paintings women are featured in elaborate tignons, an 18th century headdress imposed by law for women of color in New Orleans and a tradition that although imposed as a form of oppression became, through elaborate patterning and design, a symbol of power and beauty. Azabache, gemstones carved into fists and worn in Latin American cultures as protection from evil spirits, and panthers, a symbol claimed by the Black Panthers, the African American revolutionary party founded in the 1960s, also adorn the work. The exhibition also includes a number of new works shown for the first time.

Firelei Báez: Bloodlines is organized by Pérez Art Museum Miami Assistant Curator María Elena Ortiz. The Pittsburgh presentation is coordinated by Jessica Beck, The Warhol’s associate curator of art. Firelei Báez: Bloodlines and its presentation at the Pérez Art Museum Miami was made possible by BNY Mellon with additional support from Chloé.

Communal Resurrection: The Soul of a Community, images by Steve Prince

May 1 - June 18

Opening Reception: April 21 5:30-10:00p.m.
Communal Resurrection chronicles the progression of Black music from the fields to hip-hop. The series reveals how the music became a balm for people whose names, culture, and Gods were under siege through the stultifying system of American capitalism. Each image is laden with symbolism to craft a narrative of resistance, survival, and creativity in the face of hegemony. Communal Resurrection is America’s story of how the community made a way out of no way and transformed the world with a sound that could not be silenced!

Artist Steve A. Prince is a native of New Orleans, Louisiana, and he currently resides in Meadville, Pennsylvania, where he is an assistant professor of art and artist in residence at Allegheny College. He received his BFA from Xavier University of Louisiana and his MFA in printmaking and sculpture from Michigan State University. He is represented by Eyekons Gallery in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and ZuCot Gallery in Atlanta, Georgia, and is the owner of One Fish Studio LLC.

Hair

Other memorable characters include Berger’s war protester girlfriend Sheila, lovable flower child Crissy, Mick Jagger fan Woof, Claude’s straight-laced parents and many more. But the real star of Hair is the rocking score, which includes such classic hits as “Let the Sun Shine In,” “Aquarius” and “Good Morning Starshine.”

Just Films: Zero Weeks

May 18 @ 6:30 p.m.

Just Films is a collaboration of four organizations in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania committed to women, girls, gender equity, and social justice: the Chatham University Women’s Institute, New Voices Pittsburgh, the Women and Girls Foundation, and the Women’s Law Project. We have chosen ten documentaries for this film series covering a wide range of issues – from immigration to human trafficking, trans families, paid leave, and more – designed to educate, inspire, challenge, and move you to action. Many of these films were made by women, and most will be showing in Pittsburgh for the first time. What do the United State and Papua New Guinea have in common? They are the only countries in the world without a paid family leave law. In 2011, only 11 percent of private sector workers and 17 percent of public workers reported that they had access to paid family leave through their employer. Because 44 percent of American households don’t have enough savings to cover their basic expenses for three months, the birth of a new child or a medical emergency can mean financial ruin. American families are often forced to choose between tending to a spouse or parent with an unexpected medical emergency, or keeping their job and health insurance. The crisis is just as bleak for pregnant American women. Twenty five percent of new mothers return to work within 10 days after giving birth. Without the protections of paid leave, new mothers are 40% more likely to end up on food stamps or public assistance. Once a fringe issue, paid leave is now central in the national debate. President Obama mentioned it in his State of the Union address and the Department of Labor has spearheaded a “Lead on Leave” tour. It’s not just political, it’s great economics: the three states that have implemented their own policies have experienced greater economic stability. Companies like Google, who have voluntarily offered over 16 weeks of paid leave, have seen their rates of attrition fall by 50%. Paid leave is not just good for families, marriages and the health of seniors, parents and children, but it’s beneficial for business and our nation’s ability to compete on a global scale. Weaving powerful emotional stories together with insightful interviews from leading policy makers, economists, and researchers, ZERO WEEKS lays out a compelling argument for guaranteed paid leave for every American worker. The film looks at paid leave from an emotional, medical, financial and global perspective. ZERO WEEKS is the fourth documentary by award-winning director, Ky Dickens. As a female director, with a trackrecord for creating poignant work known for shifting policy and public opinion, Dickens is an ideal filmmaker to tackle this project. Dickens was inspired to make a film about paid leave, after facing financial depletion and struggled with guilt and the emotional turmoil of “not enough time,”due to a lack of paid leave, after the birth of her first child.

Manfred Honeck leads the orchestra, along with the Mendelssohn Choir of Pittsburgh and outstanding soloists Christina Landshamer and Gerhild Romberger, in a performance of this monumental symphony.

Tchaikovsky’s First Piano Concerto (A Weekend in St. Petersburg)

June 9 – June 11

Get the final stamp in your passport when chief conductor of the Royal Liverpool and Oslo Philharmonic, Vasily Petrenko debuts in a program to honor the city of St. Petersburg. Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 8 was written at a turning point in the war, and although a great sense of achievement and pride spread across the nation, Shostakovich was not so optimistic, fearing that this would give further rise to Stalin. As a result, the symphony ended with a less-than-hopeful tone, leaving it unpopular and useless for propaganda purposes in his home country. This same weekend, enjoy another debut with rising star Behzod Abduraimov in a performance of Tchaikovsky’s much-loved Piano Concerto No. 1. The concerto had its Russian premiere in St. Petersburg in November 1875 and has one of the most iconic openings of any classical work.

Andy Warhol: Stars of the Silver Screen

June 16 – September 24

Andy Warhol: Stars of the Silver Screen explores Andy Warhol’s fascination with Hollywood, fame, and stardom. Warhol’s desire to look at the stars was ignited while attending his neighborhood cinemas with his brothers in gritty, industrial 1930s Pittsburgh. He reveled in the glamorous actors, elegant costumes, and sophisticated settings of the movies from Hollywood’s golden years. As a child, Warhol sent away for fan photos and devoured movie magazines, surrounding himself with celebrity images. This practice continued into adulthood, and he eventually accumulated a profusion of photographs, movie posters, and other memorabilia. Warhol’s lifelong infatuation with fame is traced from his earliest movie star scrapbook he started when he was a young boy to a Frank Sinatra biography that was on his bedside table when he died in 1987. This exhibition considers celebrity through hundreds of archival items from The Warhol’s vast collection of Warhol’s personal items and related artworks, including paintings, prints, drawings, photographs, publications, film excerpts, television episodes, and video diaries. Part of Warhol’s Pop style had its genesis in images of the stars, and this exhibition examines some of the inspiration behind the work that kick-started the current age of global celebrity culture. The exhibition is curated by The Warhol’s Curator of Film and Video Geralyn Huxley and Chief Archivist Matt Wrbican.

This film is paired with the classic Tarzan the Ape Man (1932) starring Olympic swimmer Johnny Weismuller, whose life-size portrait Warhol kept in his collection.

Firelei Baez: Bloodlines

May 1 - May 21

Free with museum admission

Tracing the history of social movements in the United States and the Caribbean, Firelei Báez: Bloodlines presents a new body of work by Firelei Báez. Báez, born in Santiago de los Caballeros, Dominican Republic, is inspired by lineages of black resistance and works primarily with large-scale drawings on paper, making connections that further our understanding of dispersed groups.

Bloodlines showcases paintings and drawings depicting textiles, hair designs, and body ornaments, linking symbols of power with human gestures. The work is labor intensive, delicate, rich in color, and presents female subjects as strongly connected to both a past and present understanding of race. In several paintings women are featured in elaborate tignons, an 18th century headdress imposed by law for women of color in New Orleans and a tradition that although imposed as a form of oppression became, through elaborate patterning and design, a symbol of power and beauty. Azabache, gemstones carved into fists and worn in Latin American cultures as protection from evil spirits, and panthers, a symbol claimed by the Black Panthers, the African American revolutionary party founded in the 1960s, also adorn the work. The exhibition also includes a number of new works shown for the first time.

Firelei Báez: Bloodlines is organized by Pérez Art Museum Miami Assistant Curator María Elena Ortiz. The Pittsburgh presentation is coordinated by Jessica Beck, The Warhol’s associate curator of art. Firelei Báez: Bloodlines and its presentation at the Pérez Art Museum Miami was made possible by BNY Mellon with additional support from Chloé.

Communal Resurrection: The Soul of a Community, images by Steve Prince

May 1 - June 18

Opening Reception: April 21 5:30-10:00p.m.
Communal Resurrection chronicles the progression of Black music from the fields to hip-hop. The series reveals how the music became a balm for people whose names, culture, and Gods were under siege through the stultifying system of American capitalism. Each image is laden with symbolism to craft a narrative of resistance, survival, and creativity in the face of hegemony. Communal Resurrection is America’s story of how the community made a way out of no way and transformed the world with a sound that could not be silenced!

Artist Steve A. Prince is a native of New Orleans, Louisiana, and he currently resides in Meadville, Pennsylvania, where he is an assistant professor of art and artist in residence at Allegheny College. He received his BFA from Xavier University of Louisiana and his MFA in printmaking and sculpture from Michigan State University. He is represented by Eyekons Gallery in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and ZuCot Gallery in Atlanta, Georgia, and is the owner of One Fish Studio LLC.

Ironbound by Martyna Majok

May 13 - June 4

So much of Darja’s life has been spent waiting: for love, for her break in life, and for the bus she relies on to get to and from cleaning jobs in blue-collar New Jersey. Hailed as “vivid, perceptive and quietly gripping” by The New York Times, Ironbound is a riveting portrait of an independent Polish immigrant searching for the American Dream. This gritty new play by rising star Martyna Majok depicts life on the economic margins and the hope that sustains us all.

You'll be doing the "Flippy Floppy Floory" dance all night long!

Other memorable characters include Berger’s war protester girlfriend Sheila, lovable flower child Crissy, Mick Jagger fan Woof, Claude’s straight-laced parents and many more. But the real star of Hair is the rocking score, which includes such classic hits as “Let the Sun Shine In,” “Aquarius” and “Good Morning Starshine.”

Except when he says it, it’s a whole lot funnier and that has fans across North America showing up in droves for his shows and millions tuning in for his network specials.

After over a dozen sold-out performances in New York City’s comedy circuit in the last year alone, the Chicago-born-and bred turned Los Angeles native tapped Manhattan as the backdrop for his newest comedy special on Showtime, recently filmed at the historic Beacon Theatre and slated to air this fall. This highly-anticipated new hour of skepticism follows up Sebastian’s 2015 Showtime standup special and DVD “Aren’t You Embarrassed?” in which he offered up his witheringly sarcastic and exasperated take on modern behavior and etiquette. Aren’t You Embarrassed? -by popular demand is now streaming on Netflix.

VIP package includes a premium seat, signed tour laminate, signed DVD, souvenir ticket, and photo opportunity. Purchasers will be contacted with details closer to performance date.

Romantic Brahms

May 19 - May 21

Each of Johannes Brahms’ four symphonies is a masterpiece, distinctively portraying character and emotion. Together they represent what could be considered a “symphony of symphonies.” The Brahms cycle continues with American conductor David Zinman and the Pittsburgh Symphony joining forces on the Third Symphony, also known as Brahms’s Eroica. It is filled with conflicts and warm resolutions, turbulence, gentle sentiment and a twilight serenity. Rising cellist Maximilian Hornung makes his Pittsburgh Symphony debut performing Strauss’ famous tone poem, Don Quixote, which is inspired by Miguel de Cervantes’ timeless 17th-century novel of enchantments, battles, challenges and loves. In Strauss’ score, the knight himself, Don Quixote de la Mancha, comes to life in the solo cello. In the finale, the Don is ready for death and Strauss reflects the scene in six brief, gentle measures, which convey a mood touchingly similar to that of the final passages of the Brahms Third Symphony.

Daniel O’Donnell

Stand beside Me is a concert celebration of Irish, country, gospel, rock, movie and long-time Daniel O’Donnell favourites. The title ‘Stand Beside Me’ is not only a popular song among concert goers, but also reflects Daniel’s belief that fans throughout his more than 10 years on PBS have brought him to where he is today, standing beside him making his career a success and he will be forever grateful to them.

WPTS Radio presents Ty Segall

May 21 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm

Ty Segall has made whole records that wrestle with realities – fighting against some, pulling mightily to bring others into being. His new self-titled record – the next record after Emotional Mugger, Manipulator, Sleeper, Twins, Goodbye Bread, Melted, Lemons and the first self-titled album that started it up in the now-distant year of 2008 – is a clean flow, a wash of transparency falling into a world that needs to see a few things through clearly, to their logical end. It’s got some of the most lobe-blasting neckwork since the Ty Segall Band’s Slaughterhouse (from way back in the long, hot summer of 2012), but it also features a steep flight of fluent acoustic settings.

Before you ancients out there turn your heads and scoff at the premise of a twenty-something rock-and-roll goofball calling himself an old-anything, consider this: said perpetrator, he who answers to the name Mac DeMarco, has spent the better part of his time thus far writing, recording, and releasing an album of his own music pretty much every calendar flip, and pretty much on his own. The fresh meat you’re now feasting on, This Old Dog, makes for his fifth in just over half a decade—bringing the total to 3 LPs and 2 EPs. According to the DMV, MacBriare Samuel Lanyon DeMarco is 26. But in working-dog years, ol’ Mac here could easily qualify for social security. To stay gold, turns out all he needed was some new tricks.

May 24

OVO is a headlong rush into a colorful ecosystem teeming with life, where insects work, eat, crawl, flutter, play, fight and look for love in a non-stop riot of energy and movement. The insects’ home is a world of biodiversity and beauty filled with noisy action and moments of quiet emotion. When a mysterious egg appears in their midst, the insects are awestruck and intensely curious about this iconic object that represents the enigma and cycles of their lives. It’s love at first sight when a gawky, quirky insect arrives in this bustling community and a fabulous ladybug catches his eye—and the feeling is mutual. OVO is overflowing with contrasts. The hidden, secret world at our feet is revealed as tender and torrid, noisy and quiet, peaceful and chaotic. And as the sun rises on a bright new day the vibrant cycle of insect life begins anew.

WPTS Radio presents Oddisee & Good Compny – Beneath The Surface Tour with special guest Olivier St. Louis

May 25 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm

Oddisee is an everyman with extraordinary talent. Both a rapper chronicling the perils and joys of ordinary existence, and a virtuosic producer attuned to the vibrations of how life actually sounds. But don’t mistake the Odd Tape for the noise of birds chirping, idle chatter, or car alarms; it’s that internal soul-jazz reverberating at the back of your brain. For the last decade, the Mello Music Group artist has alternated between instrumental albums, full-length rap records, and his role as one-third of Diamond District. The Odd Tape is technically the former—there are no vocals—but if you call this an instrumental album, you might as well say the same about Bitches Brew.

Thom Pain (Based on Nothing)

June 1 – June 18

A moving solo show and Pulitzer Prize Finalist He's just like you, except worse. He is trying to save his life, to save your life—in that order. In his quest for salvation, he'll stop at nothing, be distracted by nothing, except maybe a piece of lint, or the woman in the second row. Thom Pain (based on nothing) is one man's attempt to mythologize the loss of innocence we all experience when we shift, sometimes in a single moment, from child to adult.

Mahler’s Resurrection

June 2 – June 4

“Why have you lived? Why have you suffered? Is it all some huge, awful joke? We have to answer these questions somehow if we are to go on living – indeed, even if we are only to go on dying!” Mahler raises these questions in the first movement of his Symphony No. 2 “Resurrection,” questions that are later answered in the finale. Manfred Honeck leads the orchestra, along with the Mendelssohn Choir of Pittsburgh and outstanding soloists Christina Landshamer and Gerhild Romberger, in a performance of this monumental symphony.

Wine & Garden Tour

June 2

Allegheny West was once the millionaires row of Pittsburgh and still contains remarkable examples of the architecture of the Gilded Age. Join us this June for a relaxed walking tour of grand homes and amazing gardens. At each stop, a selection of Spanish wine and tapas will be served. This year’s tour features two unusual Romanesque revival buildings by Henry Hobson Richardson. The first, the “Brick Oven Church” is an utterly unique country style church which includes an altar that was a gift from the Thaw family. The other is the original Thaw mansion – where Harry Thaw grew up before the incident with Stanford White and Evelyn Nesbitt. Another house on this years tour is a stone fronted home designed by Longfellow, Alden & Harlow. It was built as a gift from B F Jones (J&L Steel) to his daughter and new son in law (one of the Horne family of department store fame). The house was later the scene of a mysterious murder or suicide and is reputed to be haunted. A link to the neighborhood history site is here: http://alleghenywest.org/about/neighborhood-history/

Tchaikovsky’s First Piano Concerto

June 9 – June 11

Get the final stamp in your passport when chief conductor of the Royal Liverpool and Oslo Philharmonic, Vasily Petrenko debuts in a program to honor the city of St. Petersburg. Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 8 was written at a turning point in the war, and although a great sense of achievement and pride spread across the nation, Shostakovich was not so optimistic, fearing that this would give further rise to Stalin. As a result, the symphony ended with a less-than-hopeful tone, leaving it unpopular and useless for propaganda purposes in his home country. This same weekend, enjoy another debut with rising star Behzod Abduraimov in a performance of Tchaikovsky’s much-loved Piano Concerto No. 1. The concerto had its Russian premiere in St. Petersburg in November 1875 and has one of the most iconic openings of any classical work.

A Gathering of Sons – World Premiere Jazz

June 15 – July 7

Claim your humanity. Another Black man is shot by a White police officer, and we ask what comes next? How do we heal? How do we protect our children? How do we survive this state, this country, this world? A Gathering of Sons takes us on a journey through the lives of a young Black man, a White police officer, parents of a newborn child, and a collection of spirits who watch over the world. A confrontation with history and the way it breathes through the present, this poetic premiere is a conversation on our biases and how we heal after tragedy. It is an eye towards freedom and the work our communities need to do to reach it. Full of magic, fear, hope, pain, and, still, an even more powerful love. 28th World Premiere of Pittsburgh Festival Opera and the second new work in PFO’s “Music that Matters” series of commissioned works.

Andy Warhol: Stars of the Silver Screen

June 16 – September 24

Andy Warhol: Stars of the Silver Screen explores Andy Warhol’s fascination with Hollywood, fame, and stardom. Warhol’s desire to look at the stars was ignited while attending his neighborhood cinemas with his brothers in gritty, industrial 1930s Pittsburgh. He reveled in the glamorous actors, elegant costumes, and sophisticated settings of the movies from Hollywood’s golden years. As a child, Warhol sent away for fan photos and devoured movie magazines, surrounding himself with celebrity images. This practice continued into adulthood, and he eventually accumulated a profusion of photographs, movie posters, and other memorabilia. Warhol’s lifelong infatuation with fame is traced from his earliest movie star scrapbook he started when he was a young boy to a Frank Sinatra biography that was on his bedside table when he died in 1987. This exhibition considers celebrity through hundreds of archival items from The Warhol’s vast collection of Warhol’s personal items and related artworks, including paintings, prints, drawings, photographs, publications, film excerpts, television episodes, and video diaries. Part of Warhol’s Pop style had its genesis in images of the stars, and this exhibition examines some of the inspiration behind the work that kick-started the current age of global celebrity culture. The exhibition is curated by The Warhol’s Curator of Film and Video Geralyn Huxley and Chief Archivist Matt Wrbican.

Tarzan and Jane Regained… Sort Of, one of his earliest films, is a Warholian take on jungle adventure films and features Superstar Taylor Mead and Naomi Levine and Dennis Hopper as the title characters in a romp around Hollywood.

Kaki King: Multiple Choice Audio/Visual

Select one, select them all. You own the night with Multiple Choice Events:
[A] Attend a show
[B] Go to a dance party
[C] Grab a bite to eat at our food truck roundup, or
ALL OF THE ABOVE

Multiple Choice: Audio/Visual Edition features composer and guitarist Kaki King, hailed by Rolling Stone as “a genre unto herself.” Over the past 13 years the Brooklyn-based artist has released 8 extraordinarily diverse and distinctive albums, performed with such icons as Foo Fighters, Timbaland, and The Mountain Goats, contributed to a variety of film and TV soundtracks including Golden Globe-nominated work on Sean Penn’s "Into The Wild," and played to an increasingly fervent following of music lovers on innumerable world tours.

Provocative and moving, surprising and beautiful, “The Neck Is A Bridge To The Body” is Kaki King at her visionary best: deconstructing and redefining the role of solo instrumental artist though virtuoso technique, insatiable imagination, and boundless humanity. King's groundbreaking new multi-media performance uses projection mapping to present the guitar as an ontological tabula rasa in a creation myth unlike any other.

Or, join us at 9:00 p.m. for a dance party, more information to be announced.

Food truck entry is free, and will be available throughout the evening.

Tosca

October 8 – October 15

Set in Rome, and taking place over the course of 24 hours in June of 1800, Puccini’s Tosca is the ultimate in opera melodrama. Tosca combines political intrigue, love, loyalty, betrayal and murder with powerful music to create an unforgettably operatic experience. We are thrilled to present Leah Crocetto in the title role of Tosca. Returning favorite Mark Delavan sings the role of Scarpia, one of the great villains in not just opera, but in the pantheon of Western storytelling. Police chief Scarpia is hunting escaped political prisoner Cesare Angelotti. Angelotti is aided by artist Mario Cavaradossi, who is dating beautiful opera star Floria Tosca. Scarpia imprisons and tortures Cavaradossi to force Tosca to reveal Angelotti’s hiding place, and has even more sadistic intentions as well. Will Tosca submit? Will Scarpia keep his end of the bargain? See for yourself why Tosca is one of the most powerful operas ever written. Music Director Antony Walker conducts the Pittsburgh Opera Orchestra and Chorus.

Dracula

October 27 – October 29

Over Halloween weekend, PBT brings back the deliciously spine-chilling Dracula, based on Bram Stoker’s 1897 gothic novel – the grandfather of all vampire dramas. Dissatisfied with his bevy of undead brides, Count Dracula fixates on Svetlana, a young girl on the cusp of engagement, to satiate his thirst for fresh blood. A haunting score by Franz Liszt builds suspense while scenic designer Thomas Boyd’s fastidious studies of Balkan and Romanian architecture add authenticity to the 19th-century Transylvanian setting. The dancing also has teeth, with levitation, flying and pyrotechnics that make the choreography even more climactic. At the time of its premiere, the New York Times described it as a “spectacle of an order ballet audiences seldom see today.”

The Marriage of Figaro

November 4 – November 12

Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro is one of the most popular comic operas of all time. Filled with amusing cases of mistaken identity and romantic subterfuge, plus music by Mozart at the height of his powers, The Marriage of Figaro has stood the test of time for centuries. Based on the play by Pierre Beaumarchais, The Marriage of Figaro is a sequel to The Barber of Seville, which we performed at the Benedum Center in 2016. The story opens several years later, in Count Almaviva’s palace near Seville, Spain. Rosina is now the Countess; but her husband has lost much of his interest in her and is a would-be philanderer. Figaro, the happy bachelor at the end of The Barber of Seville, is in love with the Countess’s servant Susanna, who he plans to wed that very day. However, their employer Count Almaviva has his eye on Susanna. In fact, the Count intends to invoke the hated feudal practice of droit de seigneur - the infamous right of the lord to sleep with a commoner’s bride on her wedding night. Figaro, Susanna, and the Countess are understandably outraged at this possibility, and are determined not only to prevent it, but to teach the Count a lesson while they’re at it. Music Director Antony Walker conducts.

Jeremy Howard Beck’s The Long Walk

January 20 – January 28

Pittsburgh Opera brings a gripping, contemporary American opera to the CAPA Theater in Jeremy Howard Beck’s The Long Walk. With a libretto by Stephanie Fleischmann, The Long Walk is based on the book The Long Walk: A Story of War and the Life that Follows by Brian Castner. The opera is a deeply personal exploration of a soldier’s return from Iraq where he served as an officer in an Explosive Ordnance Disposal unit and his battle with what he calls “the Crazy” as he tries to reintegrate into his family life. ‘The Long Walk’ is the term for when a bomb disposal expert puts on their bomb suit and walks, alone, towards an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) which they must disarm. As Castner explains in an interview, “It is an extremely lonely experience; no one can help you.” However, ‘the long walk’ also refers to the struggle to re-integrate back into your own life upon returning to the United States, a struggle which Castner shares with brutal honesty. For additional background, view American Lyric Theater’s YouTube video featuring interviews with Beck, Fleischmann, and Castner. Commissioned by American Lyric Theater in 2012, the opera was developed under the auspices of the Composer Librettist Development Program, and premiered at Opera Saratoga in 2015. The Times Union called it “a daring operatic depiction of war’s aftermath”; another reviewer said it “hits on all that makes us human”.

Wicked

When she meets a bubbly blonde who is exceptionally popular, their initial rivalry turns into the unlikeliest of friendships…until the world decides to call one “good,” and the other one “wicked.”

From the first electrifying note to the final breathtaking moment, WICKED—the untold true story of the Witches of Oz—transfixes audiences with its wildly inventive story that USA Today cheers is “a complete triumph! An original musical that will make you laugh, cry, and think.”

Second Stage Project: World premiere of Douglas J. Cuomo’s Ashes & Snow

February 17 – February 25

Pittsburgh Opera is proud to produce our second world premiere in two years. This time the work will be performed in the intimate environs of Pittsburgh Opera’s historic headquarters in the Strip District. Ashes & Snow, composed by Douglas J. Cuomo, is based on Wilhelm Müller’s 24 poem cycle used as the text for Franz Schubert’s famous Winterreise (“Winter Journey”). The 24 poems and songs of the Winterreise tell an anguished story of lost love, through what is essentially a single dramatic monologue, sung here by Pittsburgh Opera Resident Artist tenor Eric Ferring. Ashes & Snow is set in the present day, and unfolds in a run-down motel room in the desert of the American West. The protagonist must confront his demons and face up to everything he has done, and all he has lost, in his life. He is searching for forgiveness, enlightenment and atonement. Musically, Mr. Ferring will be accompanied by three on-stage musicians, who will be playing an electric guitar, trumpet, and piano (keyboards), with electronic sound effects. The musical style is ‘21st century art-song’, infused with acid jazz and punk energy, to create a very raw and emotional experience. Composer Douglas J. Cuomo is perhaps most well-known for his opera “Doubt”, based on the play and movie of the same name, which premiered at Minnesota Opera in 2013. After its world premiere at Pittsburgh Opera, Ashes & Snow will be performed at the prestigious Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) in autumn 2018.

Swan Lake with the PBT Orchestra

February 16 – February 25

An evil enchantment and a mysterious love story give wings to a ballet that has captured the public imagination since 1895. Together with the live PBT Orchestra, PBT returns to Swan Lake for two weekends around Valentine’s Day. Swan Lake exemplifies classical technique – from the ballet en blanc swan scenes to the Black Swan’s famous 32 fouettés. But it’s the undulating port de bras of the swans – a movement quality unique to Swan Lake – that lends its own mystique to the classical vocabulary. Set to the stirring themes of Tchaikovsky’s score, the split personalities of Odette and Odile mirror the age-old battle between good and evil. Subscribe now for priority seating, VIP benefits and exclusive savings over single tickets.

The Elixir of Love

April 21 – April 29

We will conclude our 2017-18 season with Donizetti’s L’elisir d’amore - The Elixir Of Love, a comedy about a traveling medicine show huckster who claims to possess a love potion. People have pinned their romantic hopes on magic love potions for thousands of years. Why, the very name ‘aphrodisiac’ comes from the Greek goddess of love, Aphrodite. And whether it’s Love Potion Number 9 or the Funky Cold Medina, people have been singing about love potions for a long time too. The story concerns a “little nobody” named Nemorino. Nemorino is smitten with the beautiful and wealthy Adina, who appears to be completely out of his league. His prospects are further diminished when the handsome and dashing Sergeant Belcore arrives. But when Doctor Dulcamara rolls into town and sells Nemorino a bottle of his dubious Elixir of Love, things get very interesting. Not seen here since 2007, The Elixir of Love is full of charming romance and light-hearted fun. Pittsburgh Opera’s annual Student Matinee will introduce 2,000+ school children grades 3- 12 to this lively, colorful opera on Thursday, April 26th, 2018 at the Benedum Center. The Resident Artists take lead roles in the Student Matinee, and are accompanied by the Pittsburgh Opera Orchestra, in yet another opportunity to hone performance skills.

UPMC Presents West Side Story Suite + In the Night with the PBT Orchestra

May 4 – May 6

PBT’s season finale celebrates the 100th birthdays of Jerome Robbins and Leonard Bernstein, whose game-changing Broadway collaboration remains as relevant today as it was in 1957. “West Side Story Suite” samples classic songs and dances from the full-length musical and film. In this work, the dancers not only dance – they’ll sing excerpts from famous songs like America and Cool. Tapping into the raw emotions that drove the full-length story, the dancers will take on the personas of Tony, Maria and the rival Jets and Sharks through choreography that earned Robbins a Tony Award. “West Side Story Suite” will share the program with another Robbins masterwork: his intimate 1940 work, “In the Night,” set to four Chopin nocturnes. With pas de deux for three very different couples, “In the Night” lifts the curtain on love at its most tender and its most tumultuous.

Firelei Baez: Bloodlines

May 1 - May 21

Free with museum admission

Tracing the history of social movements in the United States and the Caribbean, Firelei Báez: Bloodlines presents a new body of work by Firelei Báez. Báez, born in Santiago de los Caballeros, Dominican Republic, is inspired by lineages of black resistance and works primarily with large-scale drawings on paper, making connections that further our understanding of dispersed groups.

Bloodlines showcases paintings and drawings depicting textiles, hair designs, and body ornaments, linking symbols of power with human gestures. The work is labor intensive, delicate, rich in color, and presents female subjects as strongly connected to both a past and present understanding of race. In several paintings women are featured in elaborate tignons, an 18th century headdress imposed by law for women of color in New Orleans and a tradition that although imposed as a form of oppression became, through elaborate patterning and design, a symbol of power and beauty. Azabache, gemstones carved into fists and worn in Latin American cultures as protection from evil spirits, and panthers, a symbol claimed by the Black Panthers, the African American revolutionary party founded in the 1960s, also adorn the work. The exhibition also includes a number of new works shown for the first time.

Firelei Báez: Bloodlines is organized by Pérez Art Museum Miami Assistant Curator María Elena Ortiz. The Pittsburgh presentation is coordinated by Jessica Beck, The Warhol’s associate curator of art. Firelei Báez: Bloodlines and its presentation at the Pérez Art Museum Miami was made possible by BNY Mellon with additional support from Chloé.

Ice Station Zebra

May 1 - May 28

Ice Station Zebra, lead by American artist Emily Newman, is an anti-Cold War project designed to entertain, inform, and engage children and adults on opposite sides of a historical intrigue to play together. Using the language of old Hollywood, the aim of the project is to open an alternative channel for dialogue, in contrast to the current global media, which on both sides is reviving Cold War-era tensions and bringing out feelings of mistrust and paranoia in the civilian population. Peace, Friendship, Bubblegum! The project addresses the special relevance of the Kirkenes/Nikel NATO border as a high-tension point in ongoing US/Russia relations, and also draws attention to the Arctic as a location for imagined and real dramatic scenarios–the cold heart of the Cold War. Emily Newman has been working on this project since 2014 and this exhibition will be one of the many milestones of its journey. Her process has been captured here on her Facebook page. The F.I.N.E. Art Residency is supported by the Fine Foundation.

#Pixburgh: A Photographic Experience

May 1 – June 4

Experience life through the lens of Pittsburghers with the Heinz History Center’s upcoming exhibition, #Pixburgh: A Photographic Experience. From the first “selfie” in 1839 to the nearly two billion images taken daily today, photography connects generations and remains one of the most popular means of self-expression. Step back in time through the lens of historic Pittsburghers in this new exhibition featuring the History Center’s extensive collection of photography. Witness an array of styles, subjects, and time periods, from police mugshots to the 1960 World Series, from early daguerreotypes to Polaroids, and experience Pittsburgh’s cycles of change and renewal. From the darkroom to the digital era, #Pixburgh will provide a compelling glimpse into how Pittsburghers chronicle life in a format that’s more popular than ever.

Firelei Baez: Bloodlines

May 1 - May 21

Free with museum admission

Tracing the history of social movements in the United States and the Caribbean, Firelei Báez: Bloodlines presents a new body of work by Firelei Báez. Báez, born in Santiago de los Caballeros, Dominican Republic, is inspired by lineages of black resistance and works primarily with large-scale drawings on paper, making connections that further our understanding of dispersed groups.

Bloodlines showcases paintings and drawings depicting textiles, hair designs, and body ornaments, linking symbols of power with human gestures. The work is labor intensive, delicate, rich in color, and presents female subjects as strongly connected to both a past and present understanding of race. In several paintings women are featured in elaborate tignons, an 18th century headdress imposed by law for women of color in New Orleans and a tradition that although imposed as a form of oppression became, through elaborate patterning and design, a symbol of power and beauty. Azabache, gemstones carved into fists and worn in Latin American cultures as protection from evil spirits, and panthers, a symbol claimed by the Black Panthers, the African American revolutionary party founded in the 1960s, also adorn the work. The exhibition also includes a number of new works shown for the first time.

Firelei Báez: Bloodlines is organized by Pérez Art Museum Miami Assistant Curator María Elena Ortiz. The Pittsburgh presentation is coordinated by Jessica Beck, The Warhol’s associate curator of art. Firelei Báez: Bloodlines and its presentation at the Pérez Art Museum Miami was made possible by BNY Mellon with additional support from Chloé.

Ice Station Zebra

May 1 - May 28

Ice Station Zebra, lead by American artist Emily Newman, is an anti-Cold War project designed to entertain, inform, and engage children and adults on opposite sides of a historical intrigue to play together. Using the language of old Hollywood, the aim of the project is to open an alternative channel for dialogue, in contrast to the current global media, which on both sides is reviving Cold War-era tensions and bringing out feelings of mistrust and paranoia in the civilian population. Peace, Friendship, Bubblegum! The project addresses the special relevance of the Kirkenes/Nikel NATO border as a high-tension point in ongoing US/Russia relations, and also draws attention to the Arctic as a location for imagined and real dramatic scenarios–the cold heart of the Cold War. Emily Newman has been working on this project since 2014 and this exhibition will be one of the many milestones of its journey. Her process has been captured here on her Facebook page. The F.I.N.E. Art Residency is supported by the Fine Foundation.

When Modern Was Contemporary: Selections from the Roy R. Neuberger Collection

May 1 - May 21

This pivotal exhibition is drawn from the collection of financier Roy R. Neuberger (1903-2010). One of America’s most important collectors, he assembled a groundbreaking collection of American modern art. Recognizing the significance of the art of his own time, Neuberger acquired work by a remarkable selection of modern masters, including Alexander Calder, Stuart Davis, Willem de Kooning, Marsden Hartley, Jacob Lawrence, Georgia O’Keeffe, Jackson Pollock, among numerous others. Neuberger said of himself, “I have not collected art as an investor would, I collect art because I love it.” The exhibition explores Neuberger’s significant role as a collector of and advocate for the contemporary art of his time. Viewing the collection and its collector in tandem not only affords the opportunity to examine the period when the history of modern art in America was being made but introduces our audience to Neuberger’s collection of modern masters, that for the first time, elucidates his important contribution to one of the most fertile periods in American art. Drawing 52 works from this seminal collection, When Modern Was Contemporary surveys the development of modern art in the United States from representational modes in the early years of the twentieth century through the Abstract Expressionist revolution at mid-century. The exhibition highlights the work of artists who built upon European precedents, including Max Weber and Joseph Stella; artists such as Georgia O’Keeffe and Arthur Dove who were inspired by organic forms in the American landscape; while industry is celebrated in paintings by such artists as Ralston Crawford and Charles Sheeler. Masterworks of Abstract Expressionism include a large ‘drip’ painting by Jackson Pollock and a painting from Willem de Kooning’s groundbreaking Woman series.

7th Annual Beaver County History Celebration Weekend

May 6 – May 15

Come and experience the “Then” and “Now” of Beaver County at our annual County-wide History Celebration. Things have changed a lot over the years, and we have the exhibits, photographs and fun to prove it! Ever wonder where you could find a 1930’s Fairchild that was once used to patrol our coastal waters and perform search and rescue operations? Perhaps, you have wondered about how the railroads have changed and impacted our county over the years or how going to school over 100 years ago is different from what our children experience today. Education isn’t the only thing that has changed, our labor unions and especially the industries have evolved from open farm lands to a time when our county once generated nearly 60% of the wealth of the entire nation. Learn about a time when Native Americans roamed the land and how they lived, and about the first Fort that was built on their land, or sit and enjoy an old time “Spring Social” featuring food and fun activities from yesteryear. Saturday 10am-4pm; Sunday 1-4pm

Andy Warhol: Stars of the Silver Screen

June 16 – September 24

Andy Warhol: Stars of the Silver Screen explores Andy Warhol’s fascination with Hollywood, fame, and stardom. Warhol’s desire to look at the stars was ignited while attending his neighborhood cinemas with his brothers in gritty, industrial 1930s Pittsburgh. He reveled in the glamorous actors, elegant costumes, and sophisticated settings of the movies from Hollywood’s golden years. As a child, Warhol sent away for fan photos and devoured movie magazines, surrounding himself with celebrity images. This practice continued into adulthood, and he eventually accumulated a profusion of photographs, movie posters, and other memorabilia. Warhol’s lifelong infatuation with fame is traced from his earliest movie star scrapbook he started when he was a young boy to a Frank Sinatra biography that was on his bedside table when he died in 1987. This exhibition considers celebrity through hundreds of archival items from The Warhol’s vast collection of Warhol’s personal items and related artworks, including paintings, prints, drawings, photographs, publications, film excerpts, television episodes, and video diaries. Part of Warhol’s Pop style had its genesis in images of the stars, and this exhibition examines some of the inspiration behind the work that kick-started the current age of global celebrity culture. The exhibition is curated by The Warhol’s Curator of Film and Video Geralyn Huxley and Chief Archivist Matt Wrbican.

Our field trip to the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts will feature the great ideas of Pittsburgh’s up-and-coming artists. Full Day Camps for children: $125 for Museum members, $145 non-members.

Undressed: A Brief History of Underwear

October 1, 2017 - January 7, 2018

The Frick is pleased to be the exclusive North American venue for this blockbuster exhibition organized by London’s Victoria & Albert Museum. Discover the fascinating world of underwear design from the eighteenth century to the present day in Undressed, which takes a serious look at an alluring subject. The exhibition illustrates how undergarments reflect society’s changing ideas about the body, morality, and sex, and the intimate relationship between underwear and fashion and its role in molding the body to an always changing fashionable ideal. Organized into thematic sections that explore such ideas as relaxation, revelation, temptation, transformation, and performance—Undressed looks at how our undergarments shape our bodies, and reveal things about ourselves. Organized by the Victoria & Albert Museum, London.

Ironbound by Martyna Majok

May 13 - June 4

So much of Darja’s life has been spent waiting: for love, for her break in life, and for the bus she relies on to get to and from cleaning jobs in blue-collar New Jersey. Hailed as “vivid, perceptive and quietly gripping” by The New York Times, Ironbound is a riveting portrait of an independent Polish immigrant searching for the American Dream. This gritty new play by rising star Martyna Majok depicts life on the economic margins and the hope that sustains us all.

Should you share your ice cream? And how can two friends play with one toy? Backed by the nutty backup singers The Squirrelles, the duo even gets the audience involved in the action. You'll be doing the "Flippy Floppy Floory" dance all night long!

Other memorable characters include Berger’s war protester girlfriend Sheila, lovable flower child Crissy, Mick Jagger fan Woof, Claude’s straight-laced parents and many more.

Sebastian Maniscalco

May 18 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm

Saying what we’re all thinking has always been Sebastian Maniscalco’s specialty.

Except when he says it, it’s a whole lot funnier and that has fans across North America showing up in droves for his shows and millions tuning in for his network specials.

After over a dozen sold-out performances in New York City’s comedy circuit in the last year alone, the Chicago-born-and bred turned Los Angeles native tapped Manhattan as the backdrop for his newest comedy special on Showtime, recently filmed at the historic Beacon Theatre and slated to air this fall. This highly-anticipated new hour of skepticism follows up Sebastian’s 2015 Showtime standup special and DVD “Aren’t You Embarrassed?” in which he offered up his witheringly sarcastic and exasperated take on modern behavior and etiquette. Aren’t You Embarrassed? -by popular demand is now streaming on Netflix.

VIP package includes a premium seat, signed tour laminate, signed DVD, souvenir ticket, and photo opportunity. Purchasers will be contacted with details closer to performance date.

Romantic Brahms

May 19 - May 21

Each of Johannes Brahms’ four symphonies is a masterpiece, distinctively portraying character and emotion. Together they represent what could be considered a “symphony of symphonies.” The Brahms cycle continues with American conductor David Zinman and the Pittsburgh Symphony joining forces on the Third Symphony, also known as Brahms’s Eroica. It is filled with conflicts and warm resolutions, turbulence, gentle sentiment and a twilight serenity. Rising cellist Maximilian Hornung makes his Pittsburgh Symphony debut performing Strauss’ famous tone poem, Don Quixote, which is inspired by Miguel de Cervantes’ timeless 17th-century novel of enchantments, battles, challenges and loves. In Strauss’ score, the knight himself, Don Quixote de la Mancha, comes to life in the solo cello. In the finale, the Don is ready for death and Strauss reflects the scene in six brief, gentle measures, which convey a mood touchingly similar to that of the final passages of the Brahms Third Symphony.

Daniel O’Donnell

May 19 @ 7:30 p.m.

Stand beside Me is a concert celebration of Irish, country, gospel, rock, movie and long-time Daniel O’Donnell favourites. The title ‘Stand Beside Me’ is not only a popular song among concert goers, but also reflects Daniel’s belief that fans throughout his more than 10 years on PBS have brought him to where he is today, standing beside him making his career a success and he will be forever grateful to them.

WPTS Radio presents Ty Segall

May 21 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm

Ty Segall has made whole records that wrestle with realities – fighting against some, pulling mightily to bring others into being. His new self-titled record – the next record after Emotional Mugger, Manipulator, Sleeper, Twins, Goodbye Bread, Melted, Lemons and the first self-titled album that started it up in the now-distant year of 2008 – is a clean flow, a wash of transparency falling into a world that needs to see a few things through clearly, to their logical end. It’s got some of the most lobe-blasting neckwork since the Ty Segall Band’s Slaughterhouse (from way back in the long, hot summer of 2012), but it also features a steep flight of fluent acoustic settings.

Before you ancients out there turn your heads and scoff at the premise of a twenty-something rock-and-roll goofball calling himself an old-anything, consider this: said perpetrator, he who answers to the name Mac DeMarco, has spent the better part of his time thus far writing, recording, and releasing an album of his own music pretty much every calendar flip, and pretty much on his own. The fresh meat you’re now feasting on, This Old Dog, makes for his fifth in just over half a decade—bringing the total to 3 LPs and 2 EPs. According to the DMV, MacBriare Samuel Lanyon DeMarco is 26. But in working-dog years, ol’ Mac here could easily qualify for social security. To stay gold, turns out all he needed was some new tricks.

May 24

OVO is a headlong rush into a colorful ecosystem teeming with life, where insects work, eat, crawl, flutter, play, fight and look for love in a non-stop riot of energy and movement. The insects’ home is a world of biodiversity and beauty filled with noisy action and moments of quiet emotion. When a mysterious egg appears in their midst, the insects are awestruck and intensely curious about this iconic object that represents the enigma and cycles of their lives. It’s love at first sight when a gawky, quirky insect arrives in this bustling community and a fabulous ladybug catches his eye—and the feeling is mutual. OVO is overflowing with contrasts. The hidden, secret world at our feet is revealed as tender and torrid, noisy and quiet, peaceful and chaotic. And as the sun rises on a bright new day the vibrant cycle of insect life begins anew.

WPTS Radio presents Oddisee & Good Compny – Beneath The Surface Tour with special guest Olivier St. Louis

May 25 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm

Oddisee is an everyman with extraordinary talent. Both a rapper chronicling the perils and joys of ordinary existence, and a virtuosic producer attuned to the vibrations of how life actually sounds. But don’t mistake the Odd Tape for the noise of birds chirping, idle chatter, or car alarms; it’s that internal soul-jazz reverberating at the back of your brain. For the last decade, the Mello Music Group artist has alternated between instrumental albums, full-length rap records, and his role as one-third of Diamond District. The Odd Tape is technically the former—there are no vocals—but if you call this an instrumental album, you might as well say the same about Bitches Brew.

A moving solo show and Pulitzer Prize Finalist He's just like you, except worse. He is trying to save his life, to save your life—in that order.

Mahler’s Resurrection

June 2 – June 4

“Why have you lived? Why have you suffered? Is it all some huge, awful joke? We have to answer these questions somehow if we are to go on living – indeed, even if we are only to go on dying!” Mahler raises these questions in the first movement of his Symphony No. 2 “Resurrection,” questions that are later answered in the finale. Manfred Honeck leads the orchestra, along with the Mendelssohn Choir of Pittsburgh and outstanding soloists Christina Landshamer and Gerhild Romberger, in a performance of this monumental symphony.

Tchaikovsky’s First Piano Concerto

June 9 – June 11

Get the final stamp in your passport when chief conductor of the Royal Liverpool and Oslo Philharmonic, Vasily Petrenko debuts in a program to honor the city of St. Petersburg. Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 8 was written at a turning point in the war, and although a great sense of achievement and pride spread across the nation, Shostakovich was not so optimistic, fearing that this would give further rise to Stalin. As a result, the symphony ended with a less-than-hopeful tone, leaving it unpopular and useless for propaganda purposes in his home country. This same weekend, enjoy another debut with rising star Behzod Abduraimov in a performance of Tchaikovsky’s much-loved Piano Concerto No. 1. The concerto had its Russian premiere in St. Petersburg in November 1875 and has one of the most iconic openings of any classical work.

Multiple Choice: Audio/Visual Edition features composer and guitarist Kaki King, hailed by Rolling Stone as “a genre unto herself.” Over the past 13 years the Brooklyn-based artist has released 8 extraordinarily diverse and distinctive albums, performed with such icons as Foo Fighters, Timbaland, and The Mountain Goats, contributed to a variety of film and TV soundtracks including Golden Globe-nominated work on Sean Penn’s "Into The Wild," and played to an increasingly fervent following of music lovers on innumerable world tours.

Provocative and moving, surprising and beautiful, “The Neck Is A Bridge To The Body” is Kaki King at her visionary best: deconstructing and redefining the role of solo instrumental artist though virtuoso technique, insatiable imagination, and boundless humanity. King's groundbreaking new multi-media performance uses projection mapping to present the guitar as an ontological tabula rasa in a creation myth unlike any other.

Million Dollar Quartet

August 8 – August 13

MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET is the smash-hit, Tony Award-winning musical inspired by the unexpected recording session that brought together rock 'n' roll icons Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins. On December 4, 1956, this unlikely quartet converged on Sun Records in Memphis. They didn’t always get along, but when it came to the music, they created something special. Thankfully, Sun’s owner, Sam Phillips, flipped the recording switch and rock ‘n’ roll history was made. MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET takes you behind the music with a monumental night that explodes off the stage with 21 legendary hits that defined rock 'n' roll, including: “Blue Suede Shoes,” “Walk the Line,” “Great Balls of Fire,” “Folsom Prison Blues,” “Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On” and “Hound Dog.”

Tosca

October 8 – October 15

Set in Rome, and taking place over the course of 24 hours in June of 1800, Puccini’s Tosca is the ultimate in opera melodrama. Tosca combines political intrigue, love, loyalty, betrayal and murder with powerful music to create an unforgettably operatic experience. We are thrilled to present Leah Crocetto in the title role of Tosca. Returning favorite Mark Delavan sings the role of Scarpia, one of the great villains in not just opera, but in the pantheon of Western storytelling. Police chief Scarpia is hunting escaped political prisoner Cesare Angelotti. Angelotti is aided by artist Mario Cavaradossi, who is dating beautiful opera star Floria Tosca. Scarpia imprisons and tortures Cavaradossi to force Tosca to reveal Angelotti’s hiding place, and has even more sadistic intentions as well. Will Tosca submit? Will Scarpia keep his end of the bargain? See for yourself why Tosca is one of the most powerful operas ever written. Music Director Antony Walker conducts the Pittsburgh Opera Orchestra and Chorus.

Dracula

October 27 – October 29

Over Halloween weekend, PBT brings back the deliciously spine-chilling Dracula, based on Bram Stoker’s 1897 gothic novel – the grandfather of all vampire dramas. Dissatisfied with his bevy of undead brides, Count Dracula fixates on Svetlana, a young girl on the cusp of engagement, to satiate his thirst for fresh blood. A haunting score by Franz Liszt builds suspense while scenic designer Thomas Boyd’s fastidious studies of Balkan and Romanian architecture add authenticity to the 19th-century Transylvanian setting. The dancing also has teeth, with levitation, flying and pyrotechnics that make the choreography even more climactic. At the time of its premiere, the New York Times described it as a “spectacle of an order ballet audiences seldom see today.”

The Marriage of Figaro

November 4 – November 12

Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro is one of the most popular comic operas of all time. Filled with amusing cases of mistaken identity and romantic subterfuge, plus music by Mozart at the height of his powers, The Marriage of Figaro has stood the test of time for centuries. Based on the play by Pierre Beaumarchais, The Marriage of Figaro is a sequel to The Barber of Seville, which we performed at the Benedum Center in 2016. The story opens several years later, in Count Almaviva’s palace near Seville, Spain. Rosina is now the Countess; but her husband has lost much of his interest in her and is a would-be philanderer. Figaro, the happy bachelor at the end of The Barber of Seville, is in love with the Countess’s servant Susanna, who he plans to wed that very day. However, their employer Count Almaviva has his eye on Susanna. In fact, the Count intends to invoke the hated feudal practice of droit de seigneur - the infamous right of the lord to sleep with a commoner’s bride on her wedding night. Figaro, Susanna, and the Countess are understandably outraged at this possibility, and are determined not only to prevent it, but to teach the Count a lesson while they’re at it. Music Director Antony Walker conducts.

Jeremy Howard Beck’s The Long Walk

January 20 – January 28

Pittsburgh Opera brings a gripping, contemporary American opera to the CAPA Theater in Jeremy Howard Beck’s The Long Walk. With a libretto by Stephanie Fleischmann, The Long Walk is based on the book The Long Walk: A Story of War and the Life that Follows by Brian Castner. The opera is a deeply personal exploration of a soldier’s return from Iraq where he served as an officer in an Explosive Ordnance Disposal unit and his battle with what he calls “the Crazy” as he tries to reintegrate into his family life. ‘The Long Walk’ is the term for when a bomb disposal expert puts on their bomb suit and walks, alone, towards an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) which they must disarm. As Castner explains in an interview, “It is an extremely lonely experience; no one can help you.” However, ‘the long walk’ also refers to the struggle to re-integrate back into your own life upon returning to the United States, a struggle which Castner shares with brutal honesty. For additional background, view American Lyric Theater’s YouTube video featuring interviews with Beck, Fleischmann, and Castner. Commissioned by American Lyric Theater in 2012, the opera was developed under the auspices of the Composer Librettist Development Program, and premiered at Opera Saratoga in 2015. The Times Union called it “a daring operatic depiction of war’s aftermath”; another reviewer said it “hits on all that makes us human”.

When she meets a bubbly blonde who is exceptionally popular, their initial rivalry turns into the unlikeliest of friendships…until the world decides to call one “good,” and the other one “wicked.”

From the first electrifying note to the final breathtaking moment, WICKED—the untold true story of the Witches of Oz—transfixes audiences with its wildly inventive story that USA Today cheers is “a complete triumph! An original musical that will make you laugh, cry, and think.”

Second Stage Project: World premiere of Douglas J. Cuomo’s Ashes & Snow

February 17 – February 25

Pittsburgh Opera is proud to produce our second world premiere in two years. This time the work will be performed in the intimate environs of Pittsburgh Opera’s historic headquarters in the Strip District. Ashes & Snow, composed by Douglas J. Cuomo, is based on Wilhelm Müller’s 24 poem cycle used as the text for Franz Schubert’s famous Winterreise (“Winter Journey”). The 24 poems and songs of the Winterreise tell an anguished story of lost love, through what is essentially a single dramatic monologue, sung here by Pittsburgh Opera Resident Artist tenor Eric Ferring. Ashes & Snow is set in the present day, and unfolds in a run-down motel room in the desert of the American West. The protagonist must confront his demons and face up to everything he has done, and all he has lost, in his life. He is searching for forgiveness, enlightenment and atonement. Musically, Mr. Ferring will be accompanied by three on-stage musicians, who will be playing an electric guitar, trumpet, and piano (keyboards), with electronic sound effects. The musical style is ‘21st century art-song’, infused with acid jazz and punk energy, to create a very raw and emotional experience. Composer Douglas J. Cuomo is perhaps most well-known for his opera “Doubt”, based on the play and movie of the same name, which premiered at Minnesota Opera in 2013. After its world premiere at Pittsburgh Opera, Ashes & Snow will be performed at the prestigious Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) in autumn 2018.

Swan Lake with the PBT Orchestra

February 16 – February 25

But it’s the undulating port de bras of the swans – a movement quality unique to Swan Lake – that lends its own mystique to the classical vocabulary. Set to the stirring themes of Tchaikovsky’s score, the split personalities of Odette and Odile mirror the age-old battle between good and evil. Subscribe now for priority seating, VIP benefits and exclusive savings over single tickets.

Wicked Autism Friendly Performance

February 23, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust is proud to partner with for this very special performance of WICKED.

The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust is committed to make theatre accessible to children and adults on the autism spectrum, and their families. To create an autism-friendly setting, the shows are performed in a friendly, supportive environment for an audience of families and friends with children or adults who are diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder or other sensitivity issues. Slight adjustments to the production will include reduction of any jarring sounds or strobe lights focused into the audience. In the theatre lobby there will be staffed quiet and play areas, if anyone needs to leave their seats during the performance. Specially trained volunteers will work the show to provide audience support.

For these special performances, the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust purchases every seat in the theatre for sale at discount prices exclusively to families, groups, schools, etc. whose members include individuals on the autism spectrum. The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust is proud to offer special prices to allow all patrons a chance to see a Broadway show with their family and friends.

Pittsburgh will be the first city outside of New York to offer WICKED in this form.

PLEASE NOTE: We will contact you by phone to discuss seating assignments.

Only members of the community who have a family member or friend on the Autism spectrum or who are in need of a sensory-friendly environment themselves may purchase tickets to this performance. We do welcome family and friends to experience the show together. A number of questions must be answered at point of purchased to complete the ticket transaction.

Special thanks to Autism Connection of PA for their contributions in support of this event. Please visit autismofpa.org for more information about autism and related conditions.

The Elixir of Love

April 21 – April 29

We will conclude our 2017-18 season with Donizetti’s L’elisir d’amore - The Elixir Of Love, a comedy about a traveling medicine show huckster who claims to possess a love potion. People have pinned their romantic hopes on magic love potions for thousands of years. Why, the very name ‘aphrodisiac’ comes from the Greek goddess of love, Aphrodite. And whether it’s Love Potion Number 9 or the Funky Cold Medina, people have been singing about love potions for a long time too. The story concerns a “little nobody” named Nemorino. Nemorino is smitten with the beautiful and wealthy Adina, who appears to be completely out of his league. His prospects are further diminished when the handsome and dashing Sergeant Belcore arrives. But when Doctor Dulcamara rolls into town and sells Nemorino a bottle of his dubious Elixir of Love, things get very interesting. Not seen here since 2007, The Elixir of Love is full of charming romance and light-hearted fun. Pittsburgh Opera’s annual Student Matinee will introduce 2,000+ school children grades 3- 12 to this lively, colorful opera on Thursday, April 26th, 2018 at the Benedum Center. The Resident Artists take lead roles in the Student Matinee, and are accompanied by the Pittsburgh Opera Orchestra, in yet another opportunity to hone performance skills.

UPMC Presents West Side Story Suite + In the Night with the PBT Orchestra

May 4 – May 6

PBT’s season finale celebrates the 100th birthdays of Jerome Robbins and Leonard Bernstein, whose game-changing Broadway collaboration remains as relevant today as it was in 1957. “West Side Story Suite” samples classic songs and dances from the full-length musical and film. In this work, the dancers not only dance – they’ll sing excerpts from famous songs like America and Cool. Tapping into the raw emotions that drove the full-length story, the dancers will take on the personas of Tony, Maria and the rival Jets and Sharks through choreography that earned Robbins a Tony Award. “West Side Story Suite” will share the program with another Robbins masterwork: his intimate 1940 work, “In the Night,” set to four Chopin nocturnes. With pas de deux for three very different couples, “In the Night” lifts the curtain on love at its most tender and its most tumultuous.

“Mayors of Pittsburgh” Tour at Allegheny Cemetery

May 1 - December 31

“To commemorate the City of Pittsburgh’s Bicentennial Celebration, the Allegheny Cemetery Historical Association now offers self-guided tours for guests to visit the final resting place of twenty-eight Pittsburgh Mayors in historic Allegheny Cemetery!

Notable stops include Ebenezer Denny in Section 11, the City’s first Mayor, compatriot of George Washington and famed hero of the Revolutionary War. In Section 29 we find Joseph Barker, who served from 1850-1851 and was elected into office while incarcerated (one of at least eight times he was imprisoned). Section 20 boasts Mayor George W. Guthrie who served from 1906-1909 before his appointment as the United States Ambassador to Japan by President Woodrow Wilson. We find Charles Kline in Section 40, whose service was marked by scandal, a corruption conviction and the now infamous “oriental rug.” William McNair’s headstone in Section 33 simply reads, “Husband,” though public record will remember him best for his antics in office when he named his Chauffeur the City’s Director of Public Safety and gladly stood on his head for press photos. At every stop, visitors will find a plaque with an image of the Mayor (when available) and details on the years they lived, terms served, political affiliation and accomplishments while in office.

No reservations are needed and self-guided tours are free to the public. Maps, brochures and literature detailing the Cemetery’s history and additional famous “residents” are available at the Administration Office which is staffed from 8:15am Monday – Friday until 5:00pm and Saturday until 4:00pm.

Allegheny Cemetery is a registered [501 (c)(13)] non-denominational, non-profit organization established in 1844 by the City of Pittsburgh’s most prominent citizens and philanthropists. Over 170 years later, her landscape remains as celebrated as her residents and the public is invited to visit seven days per week until 7:00pm in summer months. Fifteen miles of winding country roads offer visitors a chance to escape urban gridlock and “get lost” in a Romantic Era rural garden filled with one-of-a-kind memorial statuary and spectacular historic architecture. The Allegheny Cemetery Historical Association provides tours, educational literature and public programming as part of its mission to preserve the historic integrity of Allegheny Cemetery and celebrate the rich heritage of the greater Pittsburgh region. Guided group tours are available as well as information on burial, cremation and memorial products and services by calling 412-682-1624.”

Communal Resurrection: The Soul of a Community, images by Steve Prince

May 1- June 18

Opening Reception: April 21 5:30-10:00p.m.
Communal Resurrection chronicles the progression of Black music from the fields to hip-hop.

Each image is laden with symbolism to craft a narrative of resistance, survival, and creativity in the face of hegemony. Communal Resurrection is America’s story of how the community made a way out of no way and transformed the world with a sound that could not be silenced!

Death of a Salesman

May 1 - May 21

Directed by Mary B. Robinson

Run Time: TBA • Appropriate for children 13 and older

Willy Loman is the most famous traveling salesman in history. In this Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning play from 1949, when Willy is downsized by his young boss, he caves under the strain of not being able to make ends meet. Lyrical and intense, the action shifts between memories of Willy’s glory days and his crumbling relationship with sons Biff and Happy. Staged by the director of Freud’s Last Session at The Public, Arthur Miller’s masterpiece about aging, economics, and the American Dream has retained all its relevance and power.

Starring Andrew Polk as Willy Loman

Ice Station Zebra

May 1 - May 28

Ice Station Zebra, lead by American artist Emily Newman, is an anti-Cold War project designed to entertain, inform, and engage children and adults on opposite sides of a historical intrigue to play together. Using the language of old Hollywood, the aim of the project is to open an alternative channel for dialogue, in contrast to the current global media, which on both sides is reviving Cold War-era tensions and bringing out feelings of mistrust and paranoia in the civilian population. Peace, Friendship, Bubblegum! The project addresses the special relevance of the Kirkenes/Nikel NATO border as a high-tension point in ongoing US/Russia relations, and also draws attention to the Arctic as a location for imagined and real dramatic scenarios–the cold heart of the Cold War. Emily Newman has been working on this project since 2014 and this exhibition will be one of the many milestones of its journey. Her process has been captured here on her Facebook page. The F.I.N.E. Art Residency is supported by the Fine Foundation.

Hailed as “vivid, perceptive and quietly gripping” by The New York Times, Ironbound is a riveting portrait of an independent Polish immigrant searching for the American Dream. This gritty new play by rising star Martyna Majok depicts life on the economic margins and the hope that sustains us all.

Hair

“Set in an East Village park in 1967, Hair is the musical story of a group of hippies who celebrate peace and love in the shadow of the Vietnam War. The loose plotline centers on Berger, the charismatic leader of the “tribe,” and Claude, a sweet-natured guy from Queens who’s about to be drafted. Other memorable characters include Berger’s war protester girlfriend Sheila, lovable flower child Crissy, Mick Jagger fan Woof, Claude’s straight-laced parents and many more. But the real star of Hair is the rocking score, which includes such classic hits as “Let the Sun Shine In,” “Aquarius” and “Good Morning Starshine.”

May 18 @ 8 p.m.

Saying what we’re all thinking has always been Sebastian Maniscalco’s specialty.

Except when he says it, it’s a whole lot funnier and that has fans across North America showing up in droves for his shows and millions tuning in for his network specials.

After over a dozen sold-out performances in New York City’s comedy circuit in the last year alone, the Chicago-born-and bred turned Los Angeles native tapped Manhattan as the backdrop for his newest comedy special on Showtime, recently filmed at the historic Beacon Theatre and slated to air this fall. This highly-anticipated new hour of skepticism follows up Sebastian’s 2015 Showtime standup special and DVD “Aren't You Embarrassed?” in which he offered up his witheringly sarcastic and exasperated take on modern behavior and etiquette. Aren’t You Embarrassed? -by popular demand is now streaming on Netflix.

VIP package includes a premium seat, signed tour laminate, signed DVD, souvenir ticket, and photo opportunity. Purchasers will be contacted with details closer to performance date.

Just Films: Zero Weeks

May 18 @ 6:30 p.m.

Just Films is a collaboration of four organizations in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania committed to women, girls, gender equity, and social justice: the Chatham University Women’s Institute, New Voices Pittsburgh, the Women and Girls Foundation, and the Women’s Law Project. We have chosen ten documentaries for this film series covering a wide range of issues – from immigration to human trafficking, trans families, paid leave, and more – designed to educate, inspire, challenge, and move you to action. Many of these films were made by women, and most will be showing in Pittsburgh for the first time. What do the United State and Papua New Guinea have in common? They are the only countries in the world without a paid family leave law. In 2011, only 11 percent of private sector workers and 17 percent of public workers reported that they had access to paid family leave through their employer. Because 44 percent of American households don’t have enough savings to cover their basic expenses for three months, the birth of a new child or a medical emergency can mean financial ruin. American families are often forced to choose between tending to a spouse or parent with an unexpected medical emergency, or keeping their job and health insurance. The crisis is just as bleak for pregnant American women. Twenty five percent of new mothers return to work within 10 days after giving birth. Without the protections of paid leave, new mothers are 40% more likely to end up on food stamps or public assistance. Once a fringe issue, paid leave is now central in the national debate. President Obama mentioned it in his State of the Union address and the Department of Labor has spearheaded a “Lead on Leave” tour. It’s not just political, it’s great economics: the three states that have implemented their own policies have experienced greater economic stability. Companies like Google, who have voluntarily offered over 16 weeks of paid leave, have seen their rates of attrition fall by 50%. Paid leave is not just good for families, marriages and the health of seniors, parents and children, but it’s beneficial for business and our nation’s ability to compete on a global scale. Weaving powerful emotional stories together with insightful interviews from leading policy makers, economists, and researchers, ZERO WEEKS lays out a compelling argument for guaranteed paid leave for every American worker. The film looks at paid leave from an emotional, medical, financial and global perspective. ZERO WEEKS is the fourth documentary by award-winning director, Ky Dickens. As a female director, with a trackrecord for creating poignant work known for shifting policy and public opinion, Dickens is an ideal filmmaker to tackle this project. Dickens was inspired to make a film about paid leave, after facing financial depletion and struggled with guilt and the emotional turmoil of “not enough time,”due to a lack of paid leave, after the birth of her first child.

Romantic Brahms

May 19 – May 21

Each of Johannes Brahms’ four symphonies is a masterpiece, distinctively portraying character and emotion. Together they represent what could be considered a "symphony of symphonies." The Brahms cycle continues with American conductor David Zinman and the Pittsburgh Symphony joining forces on the Third Symphony, also known as Brahms's Eroica. It is filled with conflicts and warm resolutions, turbulence, gentle sentiment and a twilight serenity. Rising cellist Maximilian Hornung makes his Pittsburgh Symphony debut performing Strauss’ famous tone poem, Don Quixote, which is inspired by Miguel de Cervantes’ timeless 17th-century novel of enchantments, battles, challenges and loves. In Strauss’ score, the knight himself, Don Quixote de la Mancha, comes to life in the solo cello. In the finale, the Don is ready for death and Strauss reflects the scene in six brief, gentle measures, which convey a mood touchingly similar to that of the final passages of the Brahms Third Symphony.

Ovo

May 24

OVO is a headlong rush into a colorful ecosystem teeming with life, where insects work, eat, crawl, flutter, play, fight and look for love in a non-stop riot of energy and movement. The insects’ home is a world of biodiversity and beauty filled with noisy action and moments of quiet emotion. When a mysterious egg appears in their midst, the insects are awestruck and intensely curious about this iconic object that represents the enigma and cycles of their lives. It’s love at first sight when a gawky, quirky insect arrives in this bustling community and a fabulous ladybug catches his eye—and the feeling is mutual. OVO is overflowing with contrasts. The hidden, secret world at our feet is revealed as tender and torrid, noisy and quiet, peaceful and chaotic. And as the sun rises on a bright new day the vibrant cycle of insect life begins anew.

“Why have you lived? Why have you suffered? Is it all some huge, awful joke?

Manfred Honeck leads the orchestra, along with the Mendelssohn Choir of Pittsburgh and outstanding soloists Christina Landshamer and Gerhild Romberger, in a performance of this monumental symphony.

Wine & Garden Tour

Allegheny West was once the millionaires row of Pittsburgh and still contains remarkable examples of the architecture of the Gilded Age. Join us this June for a relaxed walking tour of grand homes and amazing gardens. At each stop, a selection of Spanish wine and tapas will be served. This year’s tour features two unusual Romanesque revival buildings by Henry Hobson Richardson. The first, the “Brick Oven Church” is an utterly unique country style church which includes an altar that was a gift from the Thaw family. The other is the original Thaw mansion – where Harry Thaw grew up before the incident with Stanford White and Evelyn Nesbitt. Another house on this years tour is a stone fronted home designed by Longfellow, Alden & Harlow. It was built as a gift from B F Jones (J&L Steel) to his daughter and new son in law (one of the Horne family of department store fame). The house was later the scene of a mysterious murder or suicide and is reputed to be haunted. A link to the neighborhood history site is here: http://alleghenywest.org/about/neighborhood-history/

Tchaikovsky’s First Piano Concerto (A Weekend in St. Petersburg)

June 9 – June 11

Get the final stamp in your passport when chief conductor of the Royal Liverpool and Oslo Philharmonic, Vasily Petrenko debuts in a program to honor the city of St. Petersburg. Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 8 was written at a turning point in the war, and although a great sense of achievement and pride spread across the nation, Shostakovich was not so optimistic, fearing that this would give further rise to Stalin. As a result, the symphony ended with a less-than-hopeful tone, leaving it unpopular and useless for propaganda purposes in his home country. This same weekend, enjoy another debut with rising star Behzod Abduraimov in a performance of Tchaikovsky’s much-loved Piano Concerto No. 1. The concerto had its Russian premiere in St. Petersburg in November 1875 and has one of the most iconic openings of any classical work.

Andy Warhol: Stars of the Silver Screen

June 16 – September 24

Andy Warhol: Stars of the Silver Screen explores Andy Warhol’s fascination with Hollywood, fame, and stardom. Warhol’s desire to look at the stars was ignited while attending his neighborhood cinemas with his brothers in gritty, industrial 1930s Pittsburgh. He reveled in the glamorous actors, elegant costumes, and sophisticated settings of the movies from Hollywood’s golden years. As a child, Warhol sent away for fan photos and devoured movie magazines, surrounding himself with celebrity images. This practice continued into adulthood, and he eventually accumulated a profusion of photographs, movie posters, and other memorabilia. Warhol’s lifelong infatuation with fame is traced from his earliest movie star scrapbook he started when he was a young boy to a Frank Sinatra biography that was on his bedside table when he died in 1987. This exhibition considers celebrity through hundreds of archival items from The Warhol’s vast collection of Warhol’s personal items and related artworks, including paintings, prints, drawings, photographs, publications, film excerpts, television episodes, and video diaries. Part of Warhol’s Pop style had its genesis in images of the stars, and this exhibition examines some of the inspiration behind the work that kick-started the current age of global celebrity culture. The exhibition is curated by The Warhol’s Curator of Film and Video Geralyn Huxley and Chief Archivist Matt Wrbican.

Firelei Baez: Bloodlines

May 1 - May 21

Free with museum admission

Tracing the history of social movements in the United States and the Caribbean, Firelei Báez: Bloodlines presents a new body of work by Firelei Báez. Báez, born in Santiago de los Caballeros, Dominican Republic, is inspired by lineages of black resistance and works primarily with large-scale drawings on paper, making connections that further our understanding of dispersed groups.

Bloodlines showcases paintings and drawings depicting textiles, hair designs, and body ornaments, linking symbols of power with human gestures. The work is labor intensive, delicate, rich in color, and presents female subjects as strongly connected to both a past and present understanding of race. In several paintings women are featured in elaborate tignons, an 18th century headdress imposed by law for women of color in New Orleans and a tradition that although imposed as a form of oppression became, through elaborate patterning and design, a symbol of power and beauty. Azabache, gemstones carved into fists and worn in Latin American cultures as protection from evil spirits, and panthers, a symbol claimed by the Black Panthers, the African American revolutionary party founded in the 1960s, also adorn the work. The exhibition also includes a number of new works shown for the first time.

Firelei Báez: Bloodlines is organized by Pérez Art Museum Miami Assistant Curator María Elena Ortiz. The Pittsburgh presentation is coordinated by Jessica Beck, The Warhol’s associate curator of art. Firelei Báez: Bloodlines and its presentation at the Pérez Art Museum Miami was made possible by BNY Mellon with additional support from Chloé.

Ice Station Zebra

May 1 - May 28

Ice Station Zebra, lead by American artist Emily Newman, is an anti-Cold War project designed to entertain, inform, and engage children and adults on opposite sides of a historical intrigue to play together. Using the language of old Hollywood, the aim of the project is to open an alternative channel for dialogue, in contrast to the current global media, which on both sides is reviving Cold War-era tensions and bringing out feelings of mistrust and paranoia in the civilian population. Peace, Friendship, Bubblegum! The project addresses the special relevance of the Kirkenes/Nikel NATO border as a high-tension point in ongoing US/Russia relations, and also draws attention to the Arctic as a location for imagined and real dramatic scenarios–the cold heart of the Cold War. Emily Newman has been working on this project since 2014 and this exhibition will be one of the many milestones of its journey. Her process has been captured here on her Facebook page. The F.I.N.E. Art Residency is supported by the Fine Foundation.

7th Annual Beaver County History Celebration Weekend

May 6 – May 15

Come and experience the “Then” and “Now” of Beaver County at our annual County-wide History Celebration. Things have changed a lot over the years, and we have the exhibits, photographs and fun to prove it! Ever wonder where you could find a 1930’s Fairchild that was once used to patrol our coastal waters and perform search and rescue operations? Perhaps, you have wondered about how the railroads have changed and impacted our county over the years or how going to school over 100 years ago is different from what our children experience today. Education isn’t the only thing that has changed, our labor unions and especially the industries have evolved from open farm lands to a time when our county once generated nearly 60% of the wealth of the entire nation. Learn about a time when Native Americans roamed the land and how they lived, and about the first Fort that was built on their land, or sit and enjoy an old time “Spring Social” featuring food and fun activities from yesteryear.

Before you ancients out there turn your heads and scoff at the premise of a twenty-something rock-and-roll goofball calling himself an old-anything, consider this: said perpetrator, he who answers to the name Mac DeMarco, has spent the better part of his time thus far writing, recording, and releasing an album of his own music pretty much every calendar flip, and pretty much on his own. The fresh meat you’re now feasting on, This Old Dog, makes for his fifth in just over half a decade—bringing the total to 3 LPs and 2 EPs. According to the DMV, MacBriare Samuel Lanyon DeMarco is 26. But in working-dog years, ol’ Mac here could easily qualify for social security. To stay gold, turns out all he needed was some new tricks.

WPTS Radio presents Oddisee & Good Compny – Beneath The Surface Tour with special guest Olivier St. Louis

May 25 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm

Oddisee is an everyman with extraordinary talent. Both a rapper chronicling the perils and joys of ordinary existence, and a virtuosic producer attuned to the vibrations of how life actually sounds. But don’t mistake the Odd Tape for the noise of birds chirping, idle chatter, or car alarms; it’s that internal soul-jazz reverberating at the back of your brain. For the last decade, the Mello Music Group artist has alternated between instrumental albums, full-length rap records, and his role as one-third of Diamond District. The Odd Tape is technically the former—there are no vocals—but if you call this an instrumental album, you might as well say the same about Bitches Brew.

Wine & Garden Tour

June 2

Allegheny West was once the millionaires row of Pittsburgh and still contains remarkable examples of the architecture of the Gilded Age. Join us this June for a relaxed walking tour of grand homes and amazing gardens. At each stop, a selection of Spanish wine and tapas will be served. This year’s tour features two unusual Romanesque revival buildings by Henry Hobson Richardson. The first, the “Brick Oven Church” is an utterly unique country style church which includes an altar that was a gift from the Thaw family. The other is the original Thaw mansion – where Harry Thaw grew up before the incident with Stanford White and Evelyn Nesbitt. Another house on this years tour is a stone fronted home designed by Longfellow, Alden & Harlow. It was built as a gift from B F Jones (J&L Steel) to his daughter and new son in law (one of the Horne family of department store fame). The house was later the scene of a mysterious murder or suicide and is reputed to be haunted. A link to the neighborhood history site is here: http://alleghenywest.org/about/neighborhood-history/

Andy Warhol: Stars of the Silver Screen

June 16 – September 24

Andy Warhol: Stars of the Silver Screen explores Andy Warhol’s fascination with Hollywood, fame, and stardom. Warhol’s desire to look at the stars was ignited while attending his neighborhood cinemas with his brothers in gritty, industrial 1930s Pittsburgh. He reveled in the glamorous actors, elegant costumes, and sophisticated settings of the movies from Hollywood’s golden years. As a child, Warhol sent away for fan photos and devoured movie magazines, surrounding himself with celebrity images. This practice continued into adulthood, and he eventually accumulated a profusion of photographs, movie posters, and other memorabilia. Warhol’s lifelong infatuation with fame is traced from his earliest movie star scrapbook he started when he was a young boy to a Frank Sinatra biography that was on his bedside table when he died in 1987. This exhibition considers celebrity through hundreds of archival items from The Warhol’s vast collection of Warhol’s personal items and related artworks, including paintings, prints, drawings, photographs, publications, film excerpts, television episodes, and video diaries. Part of Warhol’s Pop style had its genesis in images of the stars, and this exhibition examines some of the inspiration behind the work that kick-started the current age of global celebrity culture. The exhibition is curated by The Warhol’s Curator of Film and Video Geralyn Huxley and Chief Archivist Matt Wrbican.

“Mayors of Pittsburgh” Tour at Allegheny Cemetery

May 1 – December 31

“To commemorate the City of Pittsburgh’s Bicentennial Celebration, the Allegheny Cemetery Historical Association now offers self-guided tours for guests to visit the final resting place of twenty-eight Pittsburgh Mayors in historic Allegheny Cemetery!

Notable stops include Ebenezer Denny in Section 11, the City’s first Mayor, compatriot of George Washington and famed hero of the Revolutionary War. In Section 29 we find Joseph Barker, who served from 1850-1851 and was elected into office while incarcerated (one of at least eight times he was imprisoned). Section 20 boasts Mayor George W. Guthrie who served from 1906-1909 before his appointment as the United States Ambassador to Japan by President Woodrow Wilson. We find Charles Kline in Section 40, whose service was marked by scandal, a corruption conviction and the now infamous “oriental rug.” William McNair’s headstone in Section 33 simply reads, “Husband,” though public record will remember him best for his antics in office when he named his Chauffeur the City’s Director of Public Safety and gladly stood on his head for press photos. At every stop, visitors will find a plaque with an image of the Mayor (when available) and details on the years they lived, terms served, political affiliation and accomplishments while in office.

No reservations are needed and self-guided tours are free to the public. Maps, brochures and literature detailing the Cemetery’s history and additional famous “residents” are available at the Administration Office which is staffed from 8:15am Monday – Friday until 5:00pm and Saturday until 4:00pm.

Allegheny Cemetery is a registered [501 (c)(13)] non-denominational, non-profit organization established in 1844 by the City of Pittsburgh’s most prominent citizens and philanthropists. Over 170 years later, her landscape remains as celebrated as her residents and the public is invited to visit seven days per week until 7:00pm in summer months. Fifteen miles of winding country roads offer visitors a chance to escape urban gridlock and “get lost” in a Romantic Era rural garden filled with one-of-a-kind memorial statuary and spectacular historic architecture. The Allegheny Cemetery Historical Association provides tours, educational literature and public programming as part of its mission to preserve the historic integrity of Allegheny Cemetery and celebrate the rich heritage of the greater Pittsburgh region. Guided group tours are available as well as information on burial, cremation and memorial products and services by calling 412-682-1624.”

When Modern Was Contemporary: Selections from the Roy R. Neuberger Collection

May 1 – May 21

This pivotal exhibition is drawn from the collection of financier Roy R. Neuberger (1903-2010). One of America’s most important collectors, he assembled a groundbreaking collection of American modern art. Recognizing the significance of the art of his own time, Neuberger acquired work by a remarkable selection of modern masters, including Alexander Calder, Stuart Davis, Willem de Kooning, Marsden Hartley, Jacob Lawrence, Georgia O’Keeffe, Jackson Pollock, among numerous others. Neuberger said of himself, “I have not collected art as an investor would, I collect art because I love it.” The exhibition explores Neuberger’s significant role as a collector of and advocate for the contemporary art of his time. Viewing the collection and its collector in tandem not only affords the opportunity to examine the period when the history of modern art in America was being made but introduces our audience to Neuberger’s collection of modern masters, that for the first time, elucidates his important contribution to one of the most fertile periods in American art. Drawing 52 works from this seminal collection, When Modern Was Contemporary surveys the development of modern art in the United States from representational modes in the early years of the twentieth century through the Abstract Expressionist revolution at mid-century. The exhibition highlights the work of artists who built upon European precedents, including Max Weber and Joseph Stella; artists such as Georgia O’Keeffe and Arthur Dove who were inspired by organic forms in the American landscape; while industry is celebrated in paintings by such artists as Ralston Crawford and Charles Sheeler. Masterworks of Abstract Expressionism include a large ‘drip’ painting by Jackson Pollock and a painting from Willem de Kooning’s groundbreaking Woman series.

Many of these films were made by women, and most will be showing in Pittsburgh for the first time. What do the United State and Papua New Guinea have in common? They are the only countries in the world without a paid family leave law. In 2011, only 11 percent of private sector workers and 17 percent of public workers reported that they had access to paid family leave through their employer. Because 44 percent of American households don’t have enough savings to cover their basic expenses for three months, the birth of a new child or a medical emergency can mean financial ruin. American families are often forced to choose between tending to a spouse or parent with an unexpected medical emergency, or keeping their job and health insurance. The crisis is just as bleak for pregnant American women. Twenty five percent of new mothers return to work within 10 days after giving birth. Without the protections of paid leave, new mothers are 40% more likely to end up on food stamps or public assistance. Once a fringe issue, paid leave is now central in the national debate. President Obama mentioned it in his State of the Union address and the Department of Labor has spearheaded a “Lead on Leave” tour. It’s not just political, it’s great economics: the three states that have implemented their own policies have experienced greater economic stability. Companies like Google, who have voluntarily offered over 16 weeks of paid leave, have seen their rates of attrition fall by 50%. Paid leave is not just good for families, marriages and the health of seniors, parents and children, but it’s beneficial for business and our nation’s ability to compete on a global scale. Weaving powerful emotional stories together with insightful interviews from leading policy makers, economists, and researchers, ZERO WEEKS lays out a compelling argument for guaranteed paid leave for every American worker. The film looks at paid leave from an emotional, medical, financial and global perspective. ZERO WEEKS is the fourth documentary by award-winning director, Ky Dickens. As a female director, with a trackrecord for creating poignant work known for shifting policy and public opinion, Dickens is an ideal filmmaker to tackle this project. Dickens was inspired to make a film about paid leave, after facing financial depletion and struggled with guilt and the emotional turmoil of “not enough time,”due to a lack of paid leave, after the birth of her first child.

Opus One & PromoWest North Shore presents Mac DeMarco with special guest Tonstartssbandht

May 22 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm

Before you ancients out there turn your heads and scoff at the premise of a twenty-something rock-and-roll goofball calling himself an old-anything, consider this: said perpetrator, he who answers to the name Mac DeMarco, has spent the better part of his time thus far writing, recording, and releasing an album of his own music pretty much every calendar flip, and pretty much on his own. The fresh meat you’re now feasting on, This Old Dog, makes for his fifth in just over half a decade—bringing the total to 3 LPs and 2 EPs. According to the DMV, MacBriare Samuel Lanyon DeMarco is 26. But in working-dog years, ol’ Mac here could easily qualify for social security. To stay gold, turns out all he needed was some new tricks.

WPTS Radio presents Oddisee & Good Compny – Beneath The Surface Tour with special guest Olivier St. Louis

May 25 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm

Oddisee is an everyman with extraordinary talent. Both a rapper chronicling the perils and joys of ordinary existence, and a virtuosic producer attuned to the vibrations of how life actually sounds. But don’t mistake the Odd Tape for the noise of birds chirping, idle chatter, or car alarms; it’s that internal soul-jazz reverberating at the back of your brain. For the last decade, the Mello Music Group artist has alternated between instrumental albums, full-length rap records, and his role as one-third of Diamond District. The Odd Tape is technically the former—there are no vocals—but if you call this an instrumental album, you might as well say the same about Bitches Brew.

Claim your humanity. Another Black man is shot by a White police officer, and we ask what comes next? How do we heal? How do we protect our children? How do we survive this state, this country, this world?

A confrontation with history and the way it breathes through the present, this poetic premiere is a conversation on our biases and how we heal after tragedy. It is an eye towards freedom and the work our communities need to do to reach it. Full of magic, fear, hope, pain, and, still, an even more powerful love. 28th World Premiere of Pittsburgh Festival Opera and the second new work in PFO’s “Music that Matters” series of commissioned works.

Just Films: From This Day Forward

June 15 @ 6:30 p.m.

Just Films is a collaboration of four organizations in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania committed to women, girls, gender equity, and social justice: the Chatham University Women’s Institute, New Voices Pittsburgh, the Women and Girls Foundation, and the Women’s Law Project. We have chosen ten documentaries for this film series covering a wide range of issues – from immigration to human trafficking, trans families, paid leave, and more – designed to educate, inspire, challenge, and move you to action. Many of these films were made by women, and most will be showing in Pittsburgh for the first time. From This Day Forward is a moving portrayal of an American family coping with one of the most intimate of transformations. When director Sharon Shattuck’s father came out as transgender and changed her name to Trisha, Sharon was in the awkward throes of middle school. Her father’s transition to female was difficult for her straight-identified mother, Marcia, to accept, but her parents stayed together. As the Shattucks reunite to plan Sharon’s wedding, she seeks a deeper understanding of how her parents’ marriage survived the radical changes that threatened to tear them apart.

Irving Penn: Beyond Beauty

June 17 – September 10

In a career that spanned eight decades, iconic American photographer Irving Penn (1917–2009) created an enormous body of work. In this retrospective, the full range of his accomplishment is seen in more than 140 photographs including early social realist images, glamorous fashion photographs, insightful portraits, still lifes, nudes, and his late work with found objects. Irving Penn: Beyond Beauty provides a compelling overview of the work of one of the twentieth‐century’s greats, while simultaneously  reflecting on some of the century’s most enthralling personalities and exploring its social and cultural contrasts. Irving Penn: Beyond Beauty is organized by the Smithsonian American  Art Museum with generous support from ART MENTOR FOUNDATION LUCERNE, Sakurako and William Fisher,

Tarzan and Jane Regained… Sort Of, one of his earliest films, is a Warholian take on jungle adventure films and features Superstar Taylor Mead and Naomi Levine and Dennis Hopper as the title characters in a romp around Hollywood. This film is paired with the classic Tarzan the Ape Man (1932) starring Olympic swimmer Johnny Weismuller, whose life-size portrait Warhol kept in his collection. Ace Hotel Pittsburgh is The Warhol’s official hotel sponsor.

7th Annual Beaver County History Celebration Weekend

May 6 – May 15

Come and experience the “Then” and “Now” of Beaver County at our annual County-wide History Celebration. Things have changed a lot over the years, and we have the exhibits, photographs and fun to prove it! Ever wonder where you could find a 1930’s Fairchild that was once used to patrol our coastal waters and perform search and rescue operations? Perhaps, you have wondered about how the railroads have changed and impacted our county over the years or how going to school over 100 years ago is different from what our children experience today. Education isn’t the only thing that has changed, our labor unions and especially the industries have evolved from open farm lands to a time when our county once generated nearly 60% of the wealth of the entire nation. Learn about a time when Native Americans roamed the land and how they lived, and about the first Fort that was built on their land, or sit and enjoy an old time “Spring Social” featuring food and fun activities from yesteryear.

Voodoo Brewery and Arsenal Strength are teaming up to bring you the First Annual Voodoo Throwdown Powered by Arsenal Strength. Prepare yourself for the most intense combination of bells and brews Pittsburgh has ever seen. This CrossFit competition will feature 30 teams of two same-sex partners battling through a grueling course that will require great strength and endurance. This event is not for the faint of heart. Competition begins at 9am. Registration is $150 per team (ticket link above) and includes a complimentary draft beer as well as a limited edition T-shirt (free admission for block party). One ticket admits both team members. All proceeds will go to benefit local charities.

The workouts will be held both within the fire hall and on the basketball court across from Voodoo. There will also be an athlete village. Workouts will be consistent with the WODs featured in this year's CrossFit Open. More detailed descriptions will be announced in the weeks leading up to the Throwdown. We will have both an RXD and a scaled division. Each team will compete in three guaranteed WODs. The top two teams in each division will compete head-to-head in the final WOD to decide the winner!

In addition to the competition, there will be a block party starting at noon on the street outside of Voodoo Brewery Homestead, complete with tasty eats from Blue Sparrow, Pittsburgh Po' Boy, and Sugar & Spice, Voodoo Brewery Foodoo Truck and plenty of beer from Voodoo Brewery.

Romantic Brahms

May 19 - May 21

Each of Johannes Brahms’ four symphonies is a masterpiece, distinctively portraying character and emotion. Together they represent what could be considered a “symphony of symphonies.” The Brahms cycle continues with American conductor David Zinman and the Pittsburgh Symphony joining forces on the Third Symphony, also known as Brahms’s Eroica. It is filled with conflicts and warm resolutions, turbulence, gentle sentiment and a twilight serenity. Rising cellist Maximilian Hornung makes his Pittsburgh Symphony debut performing Strauss’ famous tone poem, Don Quixote, which is inspired by Miguel de Cervantes’ timeless 17th-century novel of enchantments, battles, challenges and loves. In Strauss’ score, the knight himself, Don Quixote de la Mancha, comes to life in the solo cello. In the finale, the Don is ready for death and Strauss reflects the scene in six brief, gentle measures, which convey a mood touchingly similar to that of the final passages of the Brahms Third Symphony.

That began a special relationship between Daniel and PBS and since then, he has recorded a further twelve specials, with ‘Stand Beside Me’ being his thirteenth one in 2013. Stand beside Me is a concert celebration of Irish, country, gospel, rock, movie and long-time Daniel O’Donnell favourites. The title ‘Stand Beside Me’ is not only a popular song among concert goers, but also reflects Daniel’s belief that fans throughout his more than 10 years on PBS have brought him to where he is today, standing beside him making his career a success and he will be forever grateful to them.

The fresh meat you’re now feasting on, This Old Dog, makes for his fifth in just over half a decade—bringing the total to 3 LPs and 2 EPs. According to the DMV, MacBriare Samuel Lanyon DeMarco is 26.

WPTS Radio presents Oddisee & Good Compny – Beneath The Surface Tour with special guest Olivier St. Louis

May 25 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm

Oddisee is an everyman with extraordinary talent. Both a rapper chronicling the perils and joys of ordinary existence, and a virtuosic producer attuned to the vibrations of how life actually sounds. But don’t mistake the Odd Tape for the noise of birds chirping, idle chatter, or car alarms; it’s that internal soul-jazz reverberating at the back of your brain. For the last decade, the Mello Music Group artist has alternated between instrumental albums, full-length rap records, and his role as one-third of Diamond District. The Odd Tape is technically the former—there are no vocals—but if you call this an instrumental album, you might as well say the same about Bitches Brew.

Together, these best friends face fundamental questions like: What do you wear to a fancy pool costume party? Should you share your ice cream? And how can two friends play with one toy? Backed by the nutty backup singers The Squirrelles, the duo even gets the audience involved in the action. You'll be doing the "Flippy Floppy Floory" dance all night long!

Hair

May 18 - May 21

“Set in an East Village park in 1967, Hair is the musical story of a group of hippies who celebrate peace and love in the shadow of the Vietnam War. The loose plotline centers on Berger, the charismatic leader of the “tribe,” and Claude, a sweet-natured guy from Queens who’s about to be drafted. Other memorable characters include Berger’s war protester girlfriend Sheila, lovable flower child Crissy, Mick Jagger fan Woof, Claude’s straight-laced parents and many more. But the real star of Hair is the rocking score, which includes such classic hits as “Let the Sun Shine In,” “Aquarius” and “Good Morning Starshine.”

It’s the summer of 1963, and 17-year-old Frances ‘Baby’ Houseman is on vacation in New York’s Catskill Mountains with her older sister and parents. Mesmerized by the racy dance moves and pounding rhythms she discovers in the resort’s staff quarters, Baby can’t wait to be part of the scene, especially when she catches sight of Johnny Castle, the resort’s sexy dance instructor. Passions ignite and Baby’s life changes forever when she is thrown in to the deep end as Johnny’s leading lady, both on-stage and off.

Ovo

May 24

OVO is a headlong rush into a colorful ecosystem teeming with life, where insects work, eat, crawl, flutter, play, fight and look for love in a non-stop riot of energy and movement. The insects’ home is a world of biodiversity and beauty filled with noisy action and moments of quiet emotion. When a mysterious egg appears in their midst, the insects are awestruck and intensely curious about this iconic object that represents the enigma and cycles of their lives. It’s love at first sight when a gawky, quirky insect arrives in this bustling community and a fabulous ladybug catches his eye—and the feeling is mutual. OVO is overflowing with contrasts. The hidden, secret world at our feet is revealed as tender and torrid, noisy and quiet, peaceful and chaotic. And as the sun rises on a bright new day the vibrant cycle of insect life begins anew.

Oddisee is an everyman with extraordinary talent. Both a rapper chronicling the perils and joys of ordinary existence, and a virtuosic producer attuned to the vibrations of how life actually sounds. But don’t mistake the Odd Tape for the noise of birds chirping, idle chatter, or car alarms; it’s that internal soul-jazz reverberating at the back of your brain. For the last decade, the Mello Music Group artist has alternated between instrumental albums, full-length rap records, and his role as one-third of Diamond District. The Odd Tape is technically the former—there are no vocals—but if you call this an instrumental album, you might as well say the same about Bitches Brew.

Mahler’s Resurrection

June 2 – June 4

“Why have you lived? Why have you suffered? Is it all some huge, awful joke? We have to answer these questions somehow if we are to go on living – indeed, even if we are only to go on dying!” Mahler raises these questions in the first movement of his Symphony No. 2 “Resurrection,” questions that are later answered in the finale. Manfred Honeck leads the orchestra, along with the Mendelssohn Choir of Pittsburgh and outstanding soloists Christina Landshamer and Gerhild Romberger, in a performance of this monumental symphony.

Tchaikovsky’s First Piano Concerto

June 9 – June 11

Get the final stamp in your passport when chief conductor of the Royal Liverpool and Oslo Philharmonic, Vasily Petrenko debuts in a program to honor the city of St. Petersburg. Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 8 was written at a turning point in the war, and although a great sense of achievement and pride spread across the nation, Shostakovich was not so optimistic, fearing that this would give further rise to Stalin. As a result, the symphony ended with a less-than-hopeful tone, leaving it unpopular and useless for propaganda purposes in his home country. This same weekend, enjoy another debut with rising star Behzod Abduraimov in a performance of Tchaikovsky’s much-loved Piano Concerto No. 1. The concerto had its Russian premiere in St. Petersburg in November 1875 and has one of the most iconic openings of any classical work.

ALL OF THE ABOVE

Multiple Choice: Audio/Visual Edition features composer and guitarist Kaki King, hailed by Rolling Stone as “a genre unto herself.” Over the past 13 years the Brooklyn-based artist has released 8 extraordinarily diverse and distinctive albums, performed with such icons as Foo Fighters, Timbaland, and The Mountain Goats, contributed to a variety of film and TV soundtracks including Golden Globe-nominated work on Sean Penn’s "Into The Wild," and played to an increasingly fervent following of music lovers on innumerable world tours.

Provocative and moving, surprising and beautiful, “The Neck Is A Bridge To The Body” is Kaki King at her visionary best: deconstructing and redefining the role of solo instrumental artist though virtuoso technique, insatiable imagination, and boundless humanity. King's groundbreaking new multi-media performance uses projection mapping to present the guitar as an ontological tabula rasa in a creation myth unlike any other.

Or, join us at 9:00 p.m. for a dance party, more information to be announced.

Tosca

October 8 – October 15

Set in Rome, and taking place over the course of 24 hours in June of 1800, Puccini’s Tosca is the ultimate in opera melodrama. Tosca combines political intrigue, love, loyalty, betrayal and murder with powerful music to create an unforgettably operatic experience. We are thrilled to present Leah Crocetto in the title role of Tosca. Returning favorite Mark Delavan sings the role of Scarpia, one of the great villains in not just opera, but in the pantheon of Western storytelling. Police chief Scarpia is hunting escaped political prisoner Cesare Angelotti. Angelotti is aided by artist Mario Cavaradossi, who is dating beautiful opera star Floria Tosca. Scarpia imprisons and tortures Cavaradossi to force Tosca to reveal Angelotti’s hiding place, and has even more sadistic intentions as well. Will Tosca submit? Will Scarpia keep his end of the bargain? See for yourself why Tosca is one of the most powerful operas ever written. Music Director Antony Walker conducts the Pittsburgh Opera Orchestra and Chorus.

Dracula

October 27 – October 29

Over Halloween weekend, PBT brings back the deliciously spine-chilling Dracula, based on Bram Stoker’s 1897 gothic novel – the grandfather of all vampire dramas. Dissatisfied with his bevy of undead brides, Count Dracula fixates on Svetlana, a young girl on the cusp of engagement, to satiate his thirst for fresh blood. A haunting score by Franz Liszt builds suspense while scenic designer Thomas Boyd’s fastidious studies of Balkan and Romanian architecture add authenticity to the 19th-century Transylvanian setting. The dancing also has teeth, with levitation, flying and pyrotechnics that make the choreography even more climactic. At the time of its premiere, the New York Times described it as a “spectacle of an order ballet audiences seldom see today.”

The Marriage of Figaro

November 4 – November 12

Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro is one of the most popular comic operas of all time. Filled with amusing cases of mistaken identity and romantic subterfuge, plus music by Mozart at the height of his powers, The Marriage of Figaro has stood the test of time for centuries. Based on the play by Pierre Beaumarchais, The Marriage of Figaro is a sequel to The Barber of Seville, which we performed at the Benedum Center in 2016. The story opens several years later, in Count Almaviva’s palace near Seville, Spain. Rosina is now the Countess; but her husband has lost much of his interest in her and is a would-be philanderer. Figaro, the happy bachelor at the end of The Barber of Seville, is in love with the Countess’s servant Susanna, who he plans to wed that very day. However, their employer Count Almaviva has his eye on Susanna. In fact, the Count intends to invoke the hated feudal practice of droit de seigneur - the infamous right of the lord to sleep with a commoner’s bride on her wedding night. Figaro, Susanna, and the Countess are understandably outraged at this possibility, and are determined not only to prevent it, but to teach the Count a lesson while they’re at it. Music Director Antony Walker conducts.

Jeremy Howard Beck’s The Long Walk

January 20 – January 28

Pittsburgh Opera brings a gripping, contemporary American opera to the CAPA Theater in Jeremy Howard Beck’s The Long Walk. With a libretto by Stephanie Fleischmann, The Long Walk is based on the book The Long Walk: A Story of War and the Life that Follows by Brian Castner. The opera is a deeply personal exploration of a soldier’s return from Iraq where he served as an officer in an Explosive Ordnance Disposal unit and his battle with what he calls “the Crazy” as he tries to reintegrate into his family life. ‘The Long Walk’ is the term for when a bomb disposal expert puts on their bomb suit and walks, alone, towards an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) which they must disarm. As Castner explains in an interview, “It is an extremely lonely experience; no one can help you.” However, ‘the long walk’ also refers to the struggle to re-integrate back into your own life upon returning to the United States, a struggle which Castner shares with brutal honesty. For additional background, view American Lyric Theater’s YouTube video featuring interviews with Beck, Fleischmann, and Castner. Commissioned by American Lyric Theater in 2012, the opera was developed under the auspices of the Composer Librettist Development Program, and premiered at Opera Saratoga in 2015. The Times Union called it “a daring operatic depiction of war’s aftermath”; another reviewer said it “hits on all that makes us human”.

When she meets a bubbly blonde who is exceptionally popular, their initial rivalry turns into the unlikeliest of friendships…until the world decides to call one “good,” and the other one “wicked.”

From the first electrifying note to the final breathtaking moment, WICKED—the untold true story of the Witches of Oz—transfixes audiences with its wildly inventive story that USA Today cheers is “a complete triumph! An original musical that will make you laugh, cry, and think.”

Second Stage Project: World premiere of Douglas J. Cuomo’s Ashes & Snow

February 17 – February 25

Pittsburgh Opera is proud to produce our second world premiere in two years. This time the work will be performed in the intimate environs of Pittsburgh Opera’s historic headquarters in the Strip District. Ashes & Snow, composed by Douglas J. Cuomo, is based on Wilhelm Müller’s 24 poem cycle used as the text for Franz Schubert’s famous Winterreise (“Winter Journey”). The 24 poems and songs of the Winterreise tell an anguished story of lost love, through what is essentially a single dramatic monologue, sung here by Pittsburgh Opera Resident Artist tenor Eric Ferring. Ashes & Snow is set in the present day, and unfolds in a run-down motel room in the desert of the American West. The protagonist must confront his demons and face up to everything he has done, and all he has lost, in his life. He is searching for forgiveness, enlightenment and atonement. Musically, Mr. Ferring will be accompanied by three on-stage musicians, who will be playing an electric guitar, trumpet, and piano (keyboards), with electronic sound effects. The musical style is ‘21st century art-song’, infused with acid jazz and punk energy, to create a very raw and emotional experience. Composer Douglas J. Cuomo is perhaps most well-known for his opera “Doubt”, based on the play and movie of the same name, which premiered at Minnesota Opera in 2013. After its world premiere at Pittsburgh Opera, Ashes & Snow will be performed at the prestigious Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) in autumn 2018.

Swan Lake with the PBT Orchestra

February 16 – February 25

An evil enchantment and a mysterious love story give wings to a ballet that has captured the public imagination since 1895. Together with the live PBT Orchestra, PBT returns to Swan Lake for two weekends around Valentine’s Day. Swan Lake exemplifies classical technique – from the ballet en blanc swan scenes to the Black Swan’s famous 32 fouettés. But it’s the undulating port de bras of the swans – a movement quality unique to Swan Lake – that lends its own mystique to the classical vocabulary. Set to the stirring themes of Tchaikovsky’s score, the split personalities of Odette and Odile mirror the age-old battle between good and evil. Subscribe now for priority seating, VIP benefits and exclusive savings over single tickets.

Moby-Dick

March 17 – March 25

As part of Pittsburgh Opera’s commitment to bring new, American operas to the Benedum Center stage, we are very proud to announce the Pittsburgh premiere of Jake Heggie’s critically acclaimed opera Moby-Dick. The opera is based on the famous novel of the same name by Herman Melville, about Captain Ahab’s megalomaniacal pursuit of a legendary white whale in his ship the Pequod. Moby-Dick the opera premiered in Dallas in 2010, and has been performed across the country and overseas. Moby-Dick has earned rave reviews, and we felt that Pittsburghers deserved the opportunity to see this tragic tale about the price of obsession. Kristine McIntyre directs. Antony Walker conducts.

In 1996, an original rock musical by a little-known composer opened on Broadway and forever changed the landscape of American theatre.

The Elixir of Love

April 21 – April 29

We will conclude our 2017-18 season with Donizetti’s L’elisir d’amore - The Elixir Of Love, a comedy about a traveling medicine show huckster who claims to possess a love potion. People have pinned their romantic hopes on magic love potions for thousands of years. Why, the very name ‘aphrodisiac’ comes from the Greek goddess of love, Aphrodite. And whether it’s Love Potion Number 9 or the Funky Cold Medina, people have been singing about love potions for a long time too. The story concerns a “little nobody” named Nemorino. Nemorino is smitten with the beautiful and wealthy Adina, who appears to be completely out of his league. His prospects are further diminished when the handsome and dashing Sergeant Belcore arrives. But when Doctor Dulcamara rolls into town and sells Nemorino a bottle of his dubious Elixir of Love, things get very interesting. Not seen here since 2007, The Elixir of Love is full of charming romance and light-hearted fun. Pittsburgh Opera’s annual Student Matinee will introduce 2,000+ school children grades 3- 12 to this lively, colorful opera on Thursday, April 26th, 2018 at the Benedum Center. The Resident Artists take lead roles in the Student Matinee, and are accompanied by the Pittsburgh Opera Orchestra, in yet another opportunity to hone performance skills.

UPMC Presents West Side Story Suite + In the Night with the PBT Orchestra

May 4 – May 6

PBT’s season finale celebrates the 100th birthdays of Jerome Robbins and Leonard Bernstein, whose game-changing Broadway collaboration remains as relevant today as it was in 1957. “West Side Story Suite” samples classic songs and dances from the full-length musical and film. In this work, the dancers not only dance – they’ll sing excerpts from famous songs like America and Cool. Tapping into the raw emotions that drove the full-length story, the dancers will take on the personas of Tony, Maria and the rival Jets and Sharks through choreography that earned Robbins a Tony Award. “West Side Story Suite” will share the program with another Robbins masterwork: his intimate 1940 work, “In the Night,” set to four Chopin nocturnes. With pas de deux for three very different couples, “In the Night” lifts the curtain on love at its most tender and its most tumultuous.

“Mayors of Pittsburgh” Tour at Allegheny Cemetery

May 1 - December 31

“To commemorate the City of Pittsburgh’s Bicentennial Celebration, the Allegheny Cemetery Historical Association now offers self-guided tours for guests to visit the final resting place of twenty-eight Pittsburgh Mayors in historic Allegheny Cemetery!

Notable stops include Ebenezer Denny in Section 11, the City’s first Mayor, compatriot of George Washington and famed hero of the Revolutionary War. In Section 29 we find Joseph Barker, who served from 1850-1851 and was elected into office while incarcerated (one of at least eight times he was imprisoned). Section 20 boasts Mayor George W. Guthrie who served from 1906-1909 before his appointment as the United States Ambassador to Japan by President Woodrow Wilson. We find Charles Kline in Section 40, whose service was marked by scandal, a corruption conviction and the now infamous “oriental rug.” William McNair’s headstone in Section 33 simply reads, “Husband,” though public record will remember him best for his antics in office when he named his Chauffeur the City’s Director of Public Safety and gladly stood on his head for press photos. At every stop, visitors will find a plaque with an image of the Mayor (when available) and details on the years they lived, terms served, political affiliation and accomplishments while in office.

No reservations are needed and self-guided tours are free to the public. Maps, brochures and literature detailing the Cemetery’s history and additional famous “residents” are available at the Administration Office which is staffed from 8:15am Monday – Friday until 5:00pm and Saturday until 4:00pm.

Allegheny Cemetery is a registered [501 (c)(13)] non-denominational, non-profit organization established in 1844 by the City of Pittsburgh’s most prominent citizens and philanthropists. Over 170 years later, her landscape remains as celebrated as her residents and the public is invited to visit seven days per week until 7:00pm in summer months. Fifteen miles of winding country roads offer visitors a chance to escape urban gridlock and “get lost” in a Romantic Era rural garden filled with one-of-a-kind memorial statuary and spectacular historic architecture. The Allegheny Cemetery Historical Association provides tours, educational literature and public programming as part of its mission to preserve the historic integrity of Allegheny Cemetery and celebrate the rich heritage of the greater Pittsburgh region. Guided group tours are available as well as information on burial, cremation and memorial products and services by calling 412-682-1624.”

Firelei Baez: Bloodlines

May 1 - May 21

Free with museum admission

Tracing the history of social movements in the United States and the Caribbean, Firelei Báez: Bloodlines presents a new body of work by Firelei Báez. Báez, born in Santiago de los Caballeros, Dominican Republic, is inspired by lineages of black resistance and works primarily with large-scale drawings on paper, making connections that further our understanding of dispersed groups.

Bloodlines showcases paintings and drawings depicting textiles, hair designs, and body ornaments, linking symbols of power with human gestures. The work is labor intensive, delicate, rich in color, and presents female subjects as strongly connected to both a past and present understanding of race. In several paintings women are featured in elaborate tignons, an 18th century headdress imposed by law for women of color in New Orleans and a tradition that although imposed as a form of oppression became, through elaborate patterning and design, a symbol of power and beauty. Azabache, gemstones carved into fists and worn in Latin American cultures as protection from evil spirits, and panthers, a symbol claimed by the Black Panthers, the African American revolutionary party founded in the 1960s, also adorn the work. The exhibition also includes a number of new works shown for the first time.

Firelei Báez: Bloodlines is organized by Pérez Art Museum Miami Assistant Curator María Elena Ortiz. The Pittsburgh presentation is coordinated by Jessica Beck, The Warhol’s associate curator of art. Firelei Báez: Bloodlines and its presentation at the Pérez Art Museum Miami was made possible by BNY Mellon with additional support from Chloé.

When Modern Was Contemporary: Selections from the Roy R. Neuberger Collection

May 1 - May 21

This pivotal exhibition is drawn from the collection of financier Roy R. Neuberger (1903-2010). One of America’s most important collectors, he assembled a groundbreaking collection of American modern art. Recognizing the significance of the art of his own time, Neuberger acquired work by a remarkable selection of modern masters, including Alexander Calder, Stuart Davis, Willem de Kooning, Marsden Hartley, Jacob Lawrence, Georgia O’Keeffe, Jackson Pollock, among numerous others. Neuberger said of himself, “I have not collected art as an investor would, I collect art because I love it.” The exhibition explores Neuberger’s significant role as a collector of and advocate for the contemporary art of his time. Viewing the collection and its collector in tandem not only affords the opportunity to examine the period when the history of modern art in America was being made but introduces our audience to Neuberger’s collection of modern masters, that for the first time, elucidates his important contribution to one of the most fertile periods in American art. Drawing 52 works from this seminal collection, When Modern Was Contemporary surveys the development of modern art in the United States from representational modes in the early years of the twentieth century through the Abstract Expressionist revolution at mid-century. The exhibition highlights the work of artists who built upon European precedents, including Max Weber and Joseph Stella; artists such as Georgia O’Keeffe and Arthur Dove who were inspired by organic forms in the American landscape; while industry is celebrated in paintings by such artists as Ralston Crawford and Charles Sheeler. Masterworks of Abstract Expressionism include a large ‘drip’ painting by Jackson Pollock and a painting from Willem de Kooning’s groundbreaking Woman series.

Death of a Salesman

May 1 - May 21

Directed by Mary B. Robinson

Run Time: TBA • Appropriate for children 13 and older

Willy Loman is the most famous traveling salesman in history. In this Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning play from 1949, when Willy is downsized by his young boss, he caves under the strain of not being able to make ends meet. Lyrical and intense, the action shifts between memories of Willy’s glory days and his crumbling relationship with sons Biff and Happy. Staged by the director of Freud’s Last Session at The Public, Arthur Miller’s masterpiece about aging, economics, and the American Dream has retained all its relevance and power.

Things have changed a lot over the years, and we have the exhibits, photographs and fun to prove it! Ever wonder where you could find a 1930’s Fairchild that was once used to patrol our coastal waters and perform search and rescue operations? Perhaps, you have wondered about how the railroads have changed and impacted our county over the years or how going to school over 100 years ago is different from what our children experience today. Education isn’t the only thing that has changed, our labor unions and especially the industries have evolved from open farm lands to a time when our county once generated nearly 60% of the wealth of the entire nation. Learn about a time when Native Americans roamed the land and how they lived, and about the first Fort that was built on their land, or sit and enjoy an old time “Spring Social” featuring food and fun activities from yesteryear.

Ironbound by Martyna Majok

May 13 - June 4

So much of Darja’s life has been spent waiting: for love, for her break in life, and for the bus she relies on to get to and from cleaning jobs in blue-collar New Jersey. Hailed as “vivid, perceptive and quietly gripping” by The New York Times, Ironbound is a riveting portrait of an independent Polish immigrant searching for the American Dream. This gritty new play by rising star Martyna Majok depicts life on the economic margins and the hope that sustains us all.

Please join them in the Cantilever Gallery to hear their take on the art and be part of the conversation. To RSVP, please visit https://www.showclix.com/event/take-two5669489/tag/take_two3_web

Hair

“Set in an East Village park in 1967, Hair is the musical story of a group of hippies who celebrate peace and love in the shadow of the Vietnam War. The loose plotline centers on Berger, the charismatic leader of the “tribe,” and Claude, a sweet-natured guy from Queens who’s about to be drafted. Other memorable characters include Berger’s war protester girlfriend Sheila, lovable flower child Crissy, Mick Jagger fan Woof, Claude’s straight-laced parents and many more. But the real star of Hair is the rocking score, which includes such classic hits as “Let the Sun Shine In,” “Aquarius” and “Good Morning Starshine.”

Romantic Brahms

May 19 - May 21

Each of Johannes Brahms’ four symphonies is a masterpiece, distinctively portraying character and emotion. Together they represent what could be considered a “symphony of symphonies.” The Brahms cycle continues with American conductor David Zinman and the Pittsburgh Symphony joining forces on the Third Symphony, also known as Brahms’s Eroica. It is filled with conflicts and warm resolutions, turbulence, gentle sentiment and a twilight serenity. Rising cellist Maximilian Hornung makes his Pittsburgh Symphony debut performing Strauss’ famous tone poem, Don Quixote, which is inspired by Miguel de Cervantes’ timeless 17th-century novel of enchantments, battles, challenges and loves. In Strauss’ score, the knight himself, Don Quixote de la Mancha, comes to life in the solo cello. In the finale, the Don is ready for death and Strauss reflects the scene in six brief, gentle measures, which convey a mood touchingly similar to that of the final passages of the Brahms Third Symphony.

Wine & Garden Tour

June 2

Allegheny West was once the millionaires row of Pittsburgh and still contains remarkable examples of the architecture of the Gilded Age. Join us this June for a relaxed walking tour of grand homes and amazing gardens. At each stop, a selection of Spanish wine and tapas will be served. This year’s tour features two unusual Romanesque revival buildings by Henry Hobson Richardson. The first, the “Brick Oven Church” is an utterly unique country style church which includes an altar that was a gift from the Thaw family. The other is the original Thaw mansion – where Harry Thaw grew up before the incident with Stanford White and Evelyn Nesbitt. Another house on this years tour is a stone fronted home designed by Longfellow, Alden & Harlow. It was built as a gift from B F Jones (J&L Steel) to his daughter and new son in law (one of the Horne family of department store fame). The house was later the scene of a mysterious murder or suicide and is reputed to be haunted. A link to the neighborhood history site is here: http://alleghenywest.org/about/neighborhood-history/

Tchaikovsky’s First Piano Concerto (A Weekend in St. Petersburg)

June 9 – June 11

Get the final stamp in your passport when chief conductor of the Royal Liverpool and Oslo Philharmonic, Vasily Petrenko debuts in a program to honor the city of St. Petersburg. Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 8 was written at a turning point in the war, and although a great sense of achievement and pride spread across the nation, Shostakovich was not so optimistic, fearing that this would give further rise to Stalin. As a result, the symphony ended with a less-than-hopeful tone, leaving it unpopular and useless for propaganda purposes in his home country. This same weekend, enjoy another debut with rising star Behzod Abduraimov in a performance of Tchaikovsky’s much-loved Piano Concerto No. 1. The concerto had its Russian premiere in St. Petersburg in November 1875 and has one of the most iconic openings of any classical work.

“Mayors of Pittsburgh” Tour at Allegheny Cemetery

May 1 - December 31

“To commemorate the City of Pittsburgh’s Bicentennial Celebration, the Allegheny Cemetery Historical Association now offers self-guided tours for guests to visit the final resting place of twenty-eight Pittsburgh Mayors in historic Allegheny Cemetery!

Notable stops include Ebenezer Denny in Section 11, the City’s first Mayor, compatriot of George Washington and famed hero of the Revolutionary War. In Section 29 we find Joseph Barker, who served from 1850-1851 and was elected into office while incarcerated (one of at least eight times he was imprisoned). Section 20 boasts Mayor George W. Guthrie who served from 1906-1909 before his appointment as the United States Ambassador to Japan by President Woodrow Wilson. We find Charles Kline in Section 40, whose service was marked by scandal, a corruption conviction and the now infamous “oriental rug.” William McNair’s headstone in Section 33 simply reads, “Husband,” though public record will remember him best for his antics in office when he named his Chauffeur the City’s Director of Public Safety and gladly stood on his head for press photos. At every stop, visitors will find a plaque with an image of the Mayor (when available) and details on the years they lived, terms served, political affiliation and accomplishments while in office.

No reservations are needed and self-guided tours are free to the public. Maps, brochures and literature detailing the Cemetery’s history and additional famous “residents” are available at the Administration Office which is staffed from 8:15am Monday – Friday until 5:00pm and Saturday until 4:00pm.

Allegheny Cemetery is a registered [501 (c)(13)] non-denominational, non-profit organization established in 1844 by the City of Pittsburgh’s most prominent citizens and philanthropists. Over 170 years later, her landscape remains as celebrated as her residents and the public is invited to visit seven days per week until 7:00pm in summer months. Fifteen miles of winding country roads offer visitors a chance to escape urban gridlock and “get lost” in a Romantic Era rural garden filled with one-of-a-kind memorial statuary and spectacular historic architecture. The Allegheny Cemetery Historical Association provides tours, educational literature and public programming as part of its mission to preserve the historic integrity of Allegheny Cemetery and celebrate the rich heritage of the greater Pittsburgh region. Guided group tours are available as well as information on burial, cremation and memorial products and services by calling 412-682-1624.”
