The small but long-running company dedicated to featuring local singers and instrumentalists stages the masterwork for one night only, at the Campbell Memorial Chapel at Chatham University.
The opera, set in Egypt, features Kelly Fiona Lynch as Aida, Robert Frankenberry as Radames and Mary Beth Sederburg as Amneris. The show includes the Undercroft Chorus and a full orchestra, conducted by Walter Morales.
The show is at 7 p.m. Chatham is located in Shadyside, off Fifth Avenue.
Tickets are $25, with discounts for students, seniors and kids under age 12.
