Netflix might have all the new bingeworthy shows, and Disney might have all the nostalgia-inducing movies, but where is the opera fan’s streaming destination? Some Atlanta locals now have the answer.
The Atlanta Opera has launched Spotlight Media, a streaming service for local opera on-demand. Each month, they will roll out a substantial new streaming bundle, combining concerts, special recordings, and behind-the-scenes footage with original opera productions captured live in the company’s “Big Tent” series.
About Spotlight Media
Funded with support from a $500,000 gift from the Lettie Pate Evans Foundation, the new subscription service is the latest initiative from Atlanta’s Carl W. Knobloch, Jr. General & Artistic Director Tomer Zvulun, the only representative of an American opera house invited to speak at the upcoming Opera Europa conference on COVID-19 and the arts.
Each subscription to the Atlanta Opera Spotlight Media will grant unlimited access to the company’s gated content for a full year. The service kicked off with Pagliacci and The Kaiser of Atlantis, the first two productions in the “Big Tent” series. Captured in a custom-designed open-air tent on a baseball field at Oglethorpe University, both films place the audience on stage among the singers.

Subscriptions are $99 annually and can be purchased on the Atlanta Opera’s website here.
