24-Hour Opera Project

The opera world is full of drama, intrigue, romance, comedy, and tragedy – how about experiencing all of those things in 24 hours? The Atlanta Opera is proud to present the fourth annual 24-Hour Opera Project®. Think of it as a creative science project where Verdi meets reality TV!

Composers and lyricists selected to participate will be randomly paired together, and will have 12 hours to write an opera scene. At the end of 12 hours, the pieces will be assigned to participating stage directors, who will draft singers from a pool of applicants, and have 8 hours to rehearse before presenting the pieces in a showcase-concert 24 hours after the project begins.

Tickets to the showcase performance at the 14th Street Playhouse on Saturday, November 2 at 8:00 p.m. are free, but a reservation is required; no physical tickets will be issued, but you will need to bring photo ID to the event, as there will be a list at the door.
