ABBREVIATED TOSCA PERFORMANCES FOR STUDENT GROUPS
The Atlanta Opera to Present Abbreviated
Tosca Performances for Student Groups
WHAT: The Atlanta Opera will present two Student Shorts, recommended for student groups in grades 6-12. Student Shorts are abbreviated performances of Tosca, an opera full of lies, lust and corruption that turns a tale of love into a struggle for survival. Amid the bloodshed of revolutionary Rome, the diva Tosca becomes trapped between her allegiance to her rebel lover, Cavaradossi, and the scheming of a treacherous police chief, Scarpia, who will stop at nothing in his lust for her. Set to Puccini’s intensely passionate music, this gripping melodrama is quintessential opera and presents the composer’s most varied and interesting soprano role. Tosca will be sung in Italian with projected English translations. These abbreviated Tosca performances feature the full Atlanta Opera Orchestra, and have a run time of 60 minutes.
WHEN: Thursday, Oct. 10, 2013 at 10 a.m. and Noon
WHERE: Cobb Energy Centre, 2800 Cobb Galleria Parkway, Atlanta, Ga. 30339
TICKETS: $10. Complimentary chaperone tickets are available for groups of 15 or more. To purchase tickets, call 404-881-8885.
