This tour-de-force solo play is as inspiring as it is hopeful.

TIT By Elizabeth Dinkova, Jesse Rassmussen and ensemble
Engage your voice with an act of radical compassion in order to unite against injustice!
7 Stages newest Home Brew @ Home by Elizabeth Dinkova, Jesse Rassmussen and the ensemble encourages audiences to use radical compassion to unite against injustice. TIT is a kaleidoscopic visual album about finding one’s voice.
This second look at the Titus Andronicus inspired new work offers a musically driven exploration of Lavinia’s journey. The ‘mute’ heroine, daughter of General Titus, played by Marium Khalid, walks between worlds - she is the voice that leads us through the dark. In the desolate war-torn future, the Neo-Roman Empire has risen from the cannibalized corpse of our old United States. We follow the intersecting stories of those in power and those who seek to gain it, featuring Parris Sarter, Patrick McColery, Eugene H Russell IV, Chris Harding, Markell Williams, Nicolette Emanuelle; original compositions by Eugene H Russel, Nicolette Emanuelle, and Ellen Warkentine. Design and Director of photography by Barrett Doyle.

The Atlanta Opera presents
Molly Blank Big Tent Series 2020-21
The Atlanta Opera has rolled out an imaginative new season beginning in the fall of 2020 along with an innovative new open-air venue to create a season of exceptional music and storytelling while prioritizing the health and safety of its audiences, performers and backstage personnel.
Drawing on the successful experimentation of the company’s critically acclaimed Discoveries series of smaller, seldom seen works performed in exciting venues, along with the company’s charge to “Reimagine Opera,” Carl W. Knobloch, Jr. General & Artistic Director Tomer Zvulun has built a season that pairs well-known chamber operas with more experimental and often satirically-biting choices.
The reimagined 2020-21 season, and the Molly Blank Big Tent Series, will include six productions overall and opens in October with Leoncavallo’s iconic Pagliacci performed in repertory with the biting satire of The Kaiser of Atlantis. Each production will have nine performances, alternating nightly, for a total of 18 performances. Both productions will be performed at Oglethorpe University, on historic Anderson Field in Hermance Stadium, beginning Oct. 22 and closing on Nov. 14.
The Molly Blank Big Tent Series will be performed in a custom-made tent without walls, allowing fresh air to wash through the venue at all times while still providing audiences with protection from the weather. The venue will have capacity for up to 240 audience members. Mobile and flexible, the new venue will become a part of the immersive experience designed to draw audiences into the performances.
Safety protocols and procedures were developed by a Health & Safety Advisory Task Force of epidemiologists, public health specialists, and doctors assembled to advise the company on its health and safety protocols. The task force membership includes Dr. Carlos del Rio, Distinguished Professor of Medicine at Emory University, and John Haupert, president and CEO of Atlanta’s Grady Health System and Vice Chair of Georgia’s Department of Public Health.
Oct 30 – Nov 1, 5, 7, 11, 13, 2020
The show must go on.
The circus performers in Pagliacci grapple with tragedy and question boldly whether they must perform despite heartbreak and ruin.
In The Atlanta Opera’s completely new fall production of Leoncavallo’s verismo classic, 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?
Oct 29, 31 – Nov 4, 6, 8, 12, 14, 2020
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 Ullman’s now critically acclaimed chamber opera The Kaiser of Atlantis was written in 1943 in the Theresienstadt concentration camp. Before his death at Auschwitz, Ullman 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.
The original 2020-21 Mainstage and Discoveries series season will be moved in its entirety to 2021-22.
And Coming Soon ...
