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

The Atlanta Opera invites all veterans and active military servicemen and women to attend each of our main stage productions for FREE, including Carmen, The Flying Dutchman, The Daughter of the Regiment and the Broadway musical Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street.

Tickets can be reserved online at least one week in advance of the performance and picked up at the venue on the day of show at Will Call. Each performance happens live at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre. . Note: Please be prepared to present your military I.D. when picking up your tickets.

Our biggest program for K-12 is available for performances on military bases serving the children of military families. This season’s Studio Tour features Mozart’s The Magic Flute, an enchanting fairy tale with heroes, heroines, and a daring rescue. This one hour abridged opera – sung in English – combines imaginative puppets with talented young singers to take kids on a magical mission, navigated by Mozart’s timeless and energetic score.
