The Pittsburgh Opera has announced its 2021-22 season, and will be returning to larger venues while also offering digital programming.

The company’s 2021-22 Benedum Center productions are reschedulings of operas previously postponed by the COVID-19 pandemic. “The Magic Flute,” originally planned for November 2020, will be performed in November 2021; “Carmen,” which was in rehearsals when the pandemic started in March 2020, will now be staged in March 2022. Two other operas that had been planned for the Benedum Center – “Rusalka” and “Aida” – are anticipated to be included in Pittsburgh Opera’s 2022-23 season.

“The Magic Flute” will be presented Nov. 6, 9, 12 and 14. “Carmen” will be staged March 26 and April 1 and April 3, 2022.

Productions at Pittsburgh Opera’s headquarters at 2425 Liberty Ave., will be “The Rose Elf,” a Pittsburgh premiere, on Jan. 22, 25, 28 and 30, 2022; “In a Grove,” a world premiere, on Feb. 19, 22, 25, 27 and March 1 and 3, 2022. “Blue,” another Pittsburgh premiere, will be at the August Wilson African American Cultural Center, April 23, 26, 28, 29 and May 1, 2022.
