Other Broadway Venues in Pittsburgh

Built in 1927 and beginning it's life as the Stanley Theatre, the Benedum Center reopened in its current form in 1987 after extensive renovations. The refurbishments included extensions to the stage and a new building, but the original vintage interior was restored to its former glory. A jewel in the crown of Pittsburgh's cultural district, the center hosts the best Broadway shows and exciting concerts as they tour, and is also home to resident organisations including the Pittsburgh CLO, Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre, and the Pittsburgh Opera.

But first she must dispose of her kidnapped sister, who's time in captivity has found her sympathetic and dedicated to restoring peace...

Pittsburgh Opera: Cosi Fan Tutte

November 7-15, 2015

Flirtation and fidelity are the order of the day in Mozart's sublime Cosi Fan Tutte (translates as 'women are all, and always so'.) Two young soldiers fall afoul of a mischievous wager to prove their doting fiances faithful. So begins a tale of devious maids, mistaken identities and seduction as desire and lust blur the lines in only the way Mozart can! Directed by and starring Britain's favorite baritone and the inspiration for Billy Elliot, Sir Thomas Allen.

And so begins a tantalizing tale of love, loss and acceptance that will melt your heart.
