Performing Arts

Pittsburgh Is Performing!

The performing arts are always in the spotlight in Pittsburgh. In the dynamic downtown Cultural District which hosts some 2,300 performances, or at neighborhood theaters in the south and east of the city, the theater, music and dance scene is unparalleled! Purchase the best seats at the best prices for any of the performances within the Pittsburgh Cultural District!

'Tis the season to plan your getaway to Pittsburgh to experience these wonderful performances on stage:

Broadway's Motown the Musical comes to Heinz Hall, Dec. 30-Jan. 4, 2015. Don't miss the story of Motown founder Berry Gordy's journey to heavyweight music mogul who launched the careers of Diana Ross, Michael Jackson, Smokey Robinson and more.

The holiday season wouldn't be the same without the Pittsburgh CLO's performance of A Musical Christmas Carol. Take your seat, Dec. 5-21, at the Byham Theater and watch as Ebenezzer Scrooge transforms after visits from the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future.

Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre presents The Nutcracker at the beautiful Benedum Center, Dec. 5-28. Be a part of the classic masterpiece this holiday season. 

It's a musical must for the holiday season - the PIttsburgh Symphony Orchestra's Highmark Holiday Pops  at Heinz Hall, Dec. 13-20. Hear all of your favorite holiday classics, including "Sleigh Ride" and "Joy to the World." 

Continue your connection to art with one-of-a-kind exhibitions at a variety of museums and galleries in the region. Also, explore Pittsburgh Art Places, a comprehensive resource for finding public art and arts venues in the Pittsburgh region.
