#67 – Atlanta Opera Presents "The Magic Flute" at OPERA 101 – Educational Program – Monday, April 19, 2010
If you’ve never been to an opera, you’re missing an amazing evening. When I wrote about the Atlanta Opera’s production of Aida back in February, the response was great – many people commented that it was the first opera they’d ever attended and loved it! If you’re afraid you won’t understand what’s going on or you won’t “get it,” why not attend a special evening that can present it to you in a fun, educational way, sort of ease you into it, so to speak?
The Atlanta Opera, currently in its 30th anniversary year, offers just such a unique opportunity for opera fans and newbies alike to enjoy and learn about each mainstage production the Monday before it opens. Tonight, Monday, April 19, 2010, they present a multimedia presentation of The Magic Flute!
This is an exceptional opportunity to learn about the history, background and storyline of the opera. Atlanta Opera volunteer and opera aficionado, Carter Joseph, leads the public through a great evening of opera education and fun. And the best part is, the evening is FREE and open to the public! Reservations are required; call 404.881.8801 for more information and to make a reservation. The evening takes place at the Atlanta Opera Center – click here for directions.
The Atlanta Opera’s new production of Mozart’s The Magic Flute opens April 24, 2010, and continues April 27 and 30, and May 2, 2010. I’ll be tweeting live from the final dress rehearsal on Thursday evening, from @365Atlanta (www.twitter.com/365atlanta) – feel free to follow along for my impressions of the evening.
In the meantime, get down to the Atlanta Opera Center tonight for the FREE presentation about the opera, and then get your tickets to see the Atlanta Opera’s new production of The Magic Flute!
