Centre Stage: The Atlanta Opera’s New Season & More!
The fall weather was a great start to our week here at Cobb Energy Centre, bringing us the new season of The Atlanta Opera and much more. Take a look at what’s been happening the week of October 8-16:
Opera’s new season!
The Atlanta Opera began it’s 2016-2017 season with it’s first performance of “The Abduction from the Seraglio” on October 8th. Music Director Arthur Fagen conducted and the comedic genius Kevin Burdette (The Pirate King in The Pirates of Penzance) returned to Atlanta as Osmin. The Abduction from the Seraglio was last seen in Atlanta in 2006. The Abduction is known as one of Mozart’s first successes as a composer. It premiered in Vienna in the year 1782. It is a colorful romance packed with action and comedy.
In addition, The Atlanta Opera have begun their rehearsals on their next production, “Silent Night”, coming to the centre November 5, 8, 11, & 13. Silent night is a powerful, true story of the spontaneous Christmas truce between French, British, and German soldiers during World War I. Tickets are on sale now!
