2013 Carnegie International
Initiated by Andrew Carnegie in 1896, the Carnegie International is among the leading exhibitions of contemporary art worldwide. The 2013 exhibition brings together 35 artists from 19 countries, including a series of large-scale commissions throughout the museum and beyond. A playground, designed in 1972, and installed outside the museum entrance, highlights an exhibition of postwar playground architecture. An ambitious reinstallation of Carnegie Museum of Art's permanent collection of modern and contemporary art will explore the International's legacy and unique history. Finally, the Carnegie International engages with neighborhoods through the Lawrenceville Apartment Talks, which began in 2011.

Cabaret Series - Marilyn Maye
Marilyn Maye appeared on the Johnny Carson show a record 76 times. She appeals to Broadway and cabaret people, who like their singing big and theatrical, and the jazz crowd, who want everything cool and understated. Her recording of Cabaret became an instant hit and her RCA "Lamp Is Low" album is considered a timeless classic. Named "Celebrity of the Year" by the Manhattan Association of Cabarets and Clubs each year since 2009, Maye received the 2013 "Legend" award from New York's Nightlife Critics Association.
Time: 7:30 pm
Location: Cabaret at Theater Square, 655 Penn Ave., Pittsburgh, PA
The Ethiopian princess Aida finds herself torn between her love for her country and her love for the Egyptian general Radames in this grandest of grand operas. Against the backdrop of their warring nations, the lovers try to defy the odds, but their fates are sealed, in this moving saga of timeless love. Aida brings the company debuts of Latonia Moore and Carl Tanner as Aida and Radames, hailed as “stunning” (Moore) and "eliciting a chorus of bravos" (Tanner) in the Metropolitan Opera's Aida. Elizabeth Bishop returns as Amneris. Attack Theatre dancers are featured along with a gloriously grand set, and animals in the Triumphal Scene.
