Scrooge’s old boss, Jacob Marley, sends three ghosts to take Scrooge on a journey through his past, present, and future that transforms his sense of purpose and interconnectedness. On this once-in-a-lifetime trip, Scrooge finds there’s more to life than being safe, secure, and wealthy, rediscovering his desire to play, connect, and celebrate with everyone from his employee Bob Cratchit to the Christmas carolers outside his window.

The Atlanta Opera
March 2020: Pagliacci + The Kaiser of Atlantis
The shows must go on.

Does art imitate life? Or does life imitate art?
The Kaiser of Atlantis
The circus is abandoned, and artists are shells of their former selves. The dictator Emperor Overall reigns and declares total war. Death refuses to take another soul. Viktor Ullmann’s now critically acclaimed chamber opera The Kaiser of Atlantis was written in 1943 in the Theresienstadt concentration camp. Before his death at Auschwitz, Ullmann gave the score to a colleague, and the opera remained unperformed until 1975. A haunting allegory about redemption despite the worst of humanity, this new production of The Kaiser of Atlantis features The Atlanta Opera Company Players in a chilling satire built for our time.
