The following message was sent to patrons who attended the Tuesday, March 10th performance of Porgy and Bess:
It has come to our attention through reports in the media, that a patron who also attended the performance on Tuesday, March 10 has tested positive for COVID-19. Though this patient stated she was without symptoms at the time she attended, the diagnosis was verified six days later.
We have worked with Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre to contact local public health officials and the US Centers for Disease Control regarding the incident. They are aware of the case and because the patron was not symptomatic during her time in the theatre, Cobb & Douglas Public Health Department would like us to relay that, based on current information, they do not believe there is any risk of transmission from this patron.
Why are we contacting you? We feel it is important to be transparent about known public health information that may help you in your healthcare decision-making at this time. Our patrons are at the center of what we do. Should you have questions, we advise contacting local health authorities for instruction.
COVID-19 UPDATE: Porgy and Bess
Posted March 16, 2020
The Atlanta Opera is devoted to the health and safety of our audience, artists, staff and collaborators.
We have been monitoring the scope of the COVID-19 pandemic, relying on information from local authorities as well as our partners and colleagues. Last week, we made the difficult decision to cancel the remaining performances of Porgy and Bess on Friday, March 13 and Sunday, March 15.
If you were a ticket holder to the performances of Porgy and Bess, please know that the full value of your tickets for these performances has been credited to your account. You may call us at any time in the coming weeks to indicate your preference for one of the following three options.
- Donate your tickets and receive a tax deduction for the total ticket value. Ticket donations can be made by e-mailing us at email@example.com or calling 404-881-8885.
- Exchange your tickets for a gift certificate, which can be used at any time through the next season.
- Receive a refund for the value of the tickets.
We hope you will consider donating the value of your tickets to The Atlanta Opera. As a nonprofit organization, we rely on charitable donations to fund our mission and support our artists. We are committed to paying our artists for the hard work they have done in preparing for Porgy and Bess. You can help us.
Thank you for supporting The Atlanta Opera.
