Pitt Arts

Welcome to the
Office of Pitt Arts!

We are here to support you as you explore your passions and identify your purpose. It is our belief that exposure to the fine arts will help you become well-rounded and invested global citizens. We are excited to connect you with the vibrant arts and culture scene of Pittsburgh!



The arts gets us thinking deeply, makes us laugh, causes us to question the world as it is, helps to build a diverse community international awareness, beautifies our world & nurtures our spirits. These are but a few ways that the arts makes our lives that much richer.

PITT ARTS is here to support Pitt students as they develop their excellence & their intellectual & leadership skills. We believe that students become more well-rounded persons & invested citizens through their exposure to the fine arts.

Featuring one of the most exquisite characters in ballet, Giselle depicts love and betrayal with heartbreaking beauty.  In this haunting tale, a lover’s lie triggers a tragic turn of fate for a young village girl.  Mist shrouds the stage as Giselle descends to a realm roamed by ghostly maidens, held captive by a curse that blurs the border with the after world.
