TOP LIVE & LOCAL

Because of the continuing COVID-19 pandemic, in-person concert listings are occasional and audience capacity is both limited and socially distanced. Check ticketing, availability and rules in advance. Some small live events have asked us not to list them because of limited seating capacity or because they are by invitation only. We look forward to more available, pubic live events for in-person audiences.

WD/28, FRI/30, SUN/2
😷 8:00pm ET: THE ATLANTA OPERA · “The Threepenny Carmen.” Jorge Parodi, conductor; Tomer Zvulun, stage director; Ashley Dixon (Carmen); Jasmine Habersham (Micaëla); Richard Trey Smagur (Don Jose); Theo Hoffman (Escamillo); Calvin Griffin (El Dancairo); Nathan Munson (El Remendado); Alejandra Sandoval (Frasquita); Gabrielle Beteag (Mercedes); Tom Key (Lilas Pastia); Sonia Olla (Flamenco Dancer). “The Threepenny Carmen is not simply a stripped down version of the original opera, it digs into what Bizet’s 1875 classic might mean for audiences today. Capturing its essence as an exploration of sexual freedom, social hierarchies and the class system.” Live performances outdoors in the Big Tent on the campus of the Cobb Energy Center. Masks, self-screening and temperature check required. Tickets available for “pods” of 2 or 4 seats: atlantaopera.org

THU/29, SAT/1
😷 8:00pm ET: THE ATLANTA OPERA · “The Threepenny Opera.” Francesco Milioto, conductor; Tomer Zvulun, stage director; Gina Perregrino (Jenny); Kevin Burdette (Jonathan Peachum); Ronnita Miller (Mes. Peachum); Kelly Kaduce (Polly); Jay Hunter Morris (Macheath). “The Threepenny Opera established Kurt Weill as one of the most successful composers of Weimar Germany. The combination of Brecht’s libretto of cynicism and hard truths with Weill’s deceptively tuneful, accessible music offers up a biting satire of the establishment. Puppets play the prostitutes, beggars, gangsters, and constables, and singers will at times wear giant puppet-like heads as both an aesthetic link with the puppets and for additional virus protection. Live performances outdoors in the Big Tent on the campus of the Cobb Energy Center. Masks, self-screening and temperature check required for audience entry. Tickets available for “pods” of 2 or 4 seats: atlantaopera.org
