Peach State Opera will be performing Mozart’s beloved The Marriage of Figaro
From Nancy Martin
I wanted to let you know about Peach State Opera, an emerging opera company who is an artist affiliate of Georgia Perimeter College in Clarkston, Ga. On September 14 at 8:00 p.m. and Sunday September 16 at a 3:00 p.m. matinee, they will be performing Mozart’s beloved The Marriage of Figaro in English at the Cole Auditorium. Both will have a pre-opera talk one hour prior to the performance by Carter Joseph who does them for The Atlanta Opera, and is famous for his Opera 101 which is part of Emory’s Continuing Education Program. Many of their singers also sing with The Atlanta Opera and have fabulous voices and acting ability. You can go to Peach State Opera’s website to buy tickets http://www.peachstateopera.org/, or get them at the door the day of the performance. If you need more information call Nancy Martin at 404-373-8165. Better still, check out her blog on the Decatur-Avondale Estates Patch under the byline of Operaddict. http://decatur.patch.com/users/nancy-martin-operaddict/blogpost posts. Here she chronicles her efforts to develop an audience base for Peach State Opera. Those of us in the arts need to support each other's efforts at every opportunity. Pass this information along to your friends, and hopefully we can pay it forward for our fellow artists.
