Up for a little bit of opera insanity? If so, this is your weekend. That’s when The Atlanta Opera holds its sixth annual 24-Hour Opera Project.
In the past year the company staged new productions of “Rigoletto” and launched its Discoveries Series of chamber operas with “Three Decembers,” “Winter Journey” and “Soldier Songs.”
For the first time ever, Atlanta Opera has added a fifth performance to a run. Performances of “The Pirates of Penzance” begin March 5.
Season includes 3 historic works, a Pulitzer winner and 2 in Discoveries Series.
“Soldier Songs” by the imaginative young composer David T. Little combines elements of theater, opera, rock-infused concert music and animation to explore the perceptions versus the realities of the Soldier.
