Come As You Are

The Atlanta Opera brings its 2021-22 season to a close at the Historic Rail Park at Pullman Yard with its “Come As You Are” festival, featuring a new production of the blockbuster musical Cabaret performed in repertoire with the critically acclaimed chamber opera As One. A special Saturday matinee features Atlanta Opera favorite, Jay Hunter Morris, in a cabaret-style concert.

The “Come As You Are” festival builds on company’s wildly successful Discoveries Series, which has a decade-long tradition of bringing bold and adventurous works to unexpected locations throughout metro Atlanta. Most recently, the opera set up a gigantic “Big Tent” to persevere by performing during the pandemic. Other Discoveries performances have taken place at the Atlanta Botanical Garden, Paris on Ponce, and other locations both downtown and further afield in Sandy Springs.

Willkommen, Bienvenue, Welcome! The Big Tent Series returns with Kander and Ebb’s Tony Award-winning musical set in 1930s Berlin. Cabaret star Sally Bowles headlines at the seedy Kit Kat Klub, where an entourage of colorful characters entertains and seduces guests looking for refuge, solace, and acceptance against the ominous threat of fascism. When a wholesome American novelist falls for Sally, he tries to convince her to leave the cabaret behind–but in Berlin she’s free…as free as she’ll ever be.

As One

Music & Concept: Laura Kaminsky
Libretto: Mark Campbell & Kimberly Reed
Film: Kimberly Reed
June 9 & 11, 2022

As One is the chamber opera everyone’s talking about. Poignant, comedic, and uplifting, the show weaves the coming-of-age story of Hannah, a transgender woman, into the universal struggle to live your own truth. Presented in an intimate performance space and scored for two singers and string quartet, As One delivers a potent reflection on modern life through stunning words and music from award winners Laura Kaminsky, Mark Campbell, and Kimberly Reed.
