September 2021: Darlin’ Cory
Set against the backdrop of 1920s Appalachia, DARLIN’ CORY is a haunting new musical by playwright & novelist Phillip DePoy (EDWARD FOOTE) and Sugarland’s Grammy-Award winning front man, Kristian Bush (TROUBADOUR). In a tiny mountain town with no road in – and no road out – a community carries secrets of all sizes. But when a young woman with ambition and intelligence collides with a pastor deeply committed to preserving the status quo, cracks begin to appear in the town’s well-constructed façade. And when a stranger appears with a mysterious backstory and the best moonshine anyone’s ever tasted – some of those secrets threaten to spill. With an original folk-country score, this modern-day myth inspired by local lore promises to leave audiences on the edge of their seats.
December 2020: A Christmas Carol: The Live Radio Play
While the whole world celebrates the holiday season, Ebenezer Scrooge prefers to remain secret, self-contained, and solitary as an oyster. But this Christmas, he can’t! 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.
In The Atlanta Opera’s completely new fall production of Leoncavallo’s verismo classic Pagliacci, audiences enter a dystopian world where artists question their ability to perform, distance separates loved ones, and a play-within-a-play exposes a great betrayal.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.
