Atlanta Opera to Host 24-HOUR OPERA PROJECT, 11/1-2

In celebration of National Opera Week, The Atlanta Opera hosts its fourth annual 24-Hour Opera Project, a whirlwind creative science project where Verdi meets reality TV! Composers and lyricists, randomly paired together, are tasked with writing an opera in 12 hours. In the subsequent 12 hours, stage directors, singers and accompanists stage and rehearse the new piece. The Project culminates in a free showcase where judges and audience alike get to name the top piece.

The project is set for Saturday, November 2, 2013 at 8 p.m. at 14th Street Playhouse, 173 14th Street NE, Atlanta, GA 30309. New, Larger Location This Year! Free; reservations at atlantaopera.org.
