Before the Little Mermaid, there was Antonin Dvorak's Rusalka, a Slavic fairy fable about an ethereal water nymph that chooses a life on land to win over her true love, the Prince. Brought to vivid life by Dvorak's exquisite melodies and the evocative language of Czech poet Jaroslav Kvapil, the Pittsburgh Opera presents a brand new production conducted by the ensemble's music director designate Antony Walker and directed by respected opera maker Kristine McIntyre (Moby Dick, Dead Man Walking).

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.
