The Atlanta Opera strives to make opera accessible through a variety of diverse programming and community partnerships in and around Metro-Atlanta.
Community Conversation: The Kaiser of Atlantis
Tuesday, October 6, 2020
Online at 5pm
Join Atlanta favorite Lois Reiztes, host of WABE’s City Lights, in conversation with The Atlanta Opera’s General & Artistic Director, Tomer Zvulun as they discuss the Opera’s upcoming production of The Kaiser of Atlantis. A partnership between The Breman Museum and The Atlanta Opera, the free virtual discussion will focus on Viktor Ullmann’s critically acclaimed chamber opera, which was written in 1943 in the Theresienstadt concentration camp. Before his death at Auschwitz, Ullmann gave the score to a colleague, and the opera remained unperformed until 1975. The Opera will perform this work in its entirety in a new production opening on October 23.
FREE and open to the public. RSVP required.
Join us one hour prior to the start of each mainstage performance for an informative talk about the evening’s opera. Learn the story behind the opera and what inspired the composer and librettist. Conducted by artists and opera aficionados, pre-opera talks give you a better understanding of the opera and a boost of energy before the curtain goes up. FREE with your ticket; seating is general admission.
