Art Over Dinner
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
Veterans and active military servicemen and women can experience grand opera on our mainstage for FREE all season long. Depending on availability, tickets may be reserved up to one week in advance of performances. Once our veterans and active military tickets are released, simply fill out the online form to claim up to four tickets per production.
With generous support from The Home Depot Foundation, The Atlanta Opera is able to offer these free benefits to veterans, active duty and military families.
