The Atlanta Opera strives to make opera accessible through a variety of diverse programming and community partnerships in and around Metro-Atlanta.


Pre-Opera Talks

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.


Veterans & Current Military

Complimentary Tickets. To honor your service as a veteran or active military, you are welcome to attend any mainstage performance of The Atlanta Opera for free.

With the support of the Home Depot Foundation, The Atlanta Opera is pleased to continue our Veteran’s Tickets Program for our 2023-24 Mainstage season, including Rigoletto, La bohème, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and Die Walküre. Tickets are now available.
