Much like human history, opera is epic in scale, full of murders and romantic intrigue, and frequently interrupted by deformed men in half-masks and capes. Get in on the grandeur with today's Groupon to see Lucia di Lammermoor at Pittsburgh Opera's Benedum Center, a luxurious, historic venue that features 18-foot-high mirrors and a 4,700-pound chandelier centerpiece. Pittsburgh Opera produces high-quality productions that enrich the lives of showgoers with highly hearable librettos. Today's excursion into opera's tragic sphere treats audiences to the compelling story of Lucia, a woman whose love life is enmeshed in a bitter family feud that leads to a forced marriage and lots of red paint.

Past productions at Pittsburgh Opera, including last year's "Falstaff" and this year's "The Barber of Seville" received positive reviews from the Pittsburgh Post Gazette, which also repeatedly named Pittsburgh Opera's productions as some of the best of Pittsburgh's classical music of the decade.

  • The season-opening production was as well-staged as any opera has been at the Benedum Center in some time. – Andrew Druckenbrod on "The Barber of Seville"
  • Technically it is impossible to steal the show when you are already the main character. But somehow that's what baritone Mark Delavan did with his brilliantly funny portrayal of Sir John Falstaff in the Pittsburgh Opera's production of Verdi's "Falstaff." – Andrew Druckenbrod

Benedum Center

The cloak of sparkling newness belies Benedum Center’s deep history in the theatrical world. Opened to regal fanfare in 1928, the theater then waded through the downs and ups of history until a $43 million restoration buffed its surfaces back to their former glory in 1984. Today, the 90 chandeliers dangling from the ceiling, the Grand Lobby’s mirrors and marble, and most of the 1,500 feet of brass rail throughout are all original. The centerpiece is the main chandelier, a 4,700-pound, 20-foot-high, 12-foot-wide behemoth that sparkles to remind visitors of the theater’s glory days.

It was a wonderful evening. I have wanted to go to the opera for years and this afforded me the opportunity not only to see the opera but to see the opera in wonderful seats. Thanks groupon
