Cinderella Studio Tour
The Atlanta Opera Studio Tour
The tour teaches introductory knowledge about opera through both performances themselves and accompanying Georgia Performance Standards materials. Recommended for grades K-12.

Who needs a fairy godmother? When Rossini wrote his version of the Cinderella story, he showed that goodness and kindness, rather than magical trappings, can be the most effective way to arrive at a fairy-tale ending. This one hour opera performance includes sparkling music, a pair of comically catty sisters, devious disguises, and one of the most compelling heroines of all time.

Presented at The Atlanta Opera Center.

No tickets will be mailed for this performance.

The Seven Deadly Sins
The Seven Deadly Sins is a ballet chanté (sung ballet) that centers on the duality of the opera’s personae, Anna I and Anna II. She/They embark on a seven-city pursuit of the American dream. In turn, they uncover each of the seven deadly sins: pride, covetousness, lust, wrath, gluttony, envy, and sloth. As is the case with all Discoveries series productions, this is not your standard opera. The Seven Deadly Sins is an immersive experience with opera singers, ballet dancers, and a composition by Kurt Weill written in 1933 during a tumultuous epoch in his native Germany. The work critiques capitalism, weaves in popular music stylings of the era, and, through song and dance, will envelop the audience into a story of sin and revelation.

Out Of Darkness: Two Remain
Composer Jake Heggie and librettist Gene Scheer's moving two-act opera centers on Holocaust survivors visited by ghosts of their past. In Act I, Krystyna shares her gripping story of survival with a journalist, and is helped by the ghosts of Auschwitz who were inspired by her written lyrics. In Act II, Gad Beck is visited by his first true love, the poet Manfred Lewin, who perished in Auschwitz. As Manfred implores Gad to remember and celebrate their love, the painful truth of their stories and fates emerges. Based in part on the true stories of two Holocaust survivors: the Polish dissident Krystyna Zywulska (1914-1993) and the gay German Jew, Gad Beck (1923-2012).
