Capitol City Opera Company 
Announces 2017-2018 Season

Capitol City Opera's 2017-2018 season will feature an exciting array of musical programs. The company will launch its season on Friday and Saturday nights, Nov. 17-18, by highlighting more than a dozen of the area's most promising Rising Stars singing arias from famous and familiar operas. Tickets are $20 per person. Both evening programs begin at 8 p.m. at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Atlanta.

On Sunday evening, Dec. 17, the company's Madrigals Singers, a Renaissance-costumed a cappellla voice ensemble which specializes in secular and sacred music that has spanned the centuries, will bring music for the holiday season to its audience. This performance will be in the acoustically outstanding sanctuary of Highpoint Episcopal Community Church in Sandy Springs. The program starts at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 per person. 

On Friday night, Jan. 26, 2018, the Capitol City Opera will bring its audience an evening of opera games and fun at Wine Dine & Win -- a fundraiser that will mark the end of the company's year-end appeal. Wine Dine & Win will feature four of the company's cast members offering music for auction. Audience members may bid during a lively auction to hear their favorite aria, be challenged to answer opera trivia questions, and become a Capitol City Opera Outreach for Children 'star' by supporting the company's children's program! Starting at 7:30 p.m.at Petite Violette Restaurant guests will enjoy an evening of merriment that includes heavy hors d'eouvres and wine.

In March the company will perform one of opera's most performed works, Guiseppe Verdi's masterpiece La Traviata. Audience members will enjoy the beautiful music, gorgeous costumes, and a heart breaking love story that is shrouded in sacrifice and misunderstanding on the stage of Oglethorpe University's Conant Performing Arts Center on Friday and Saturday evenings, and Sunday afternoon, March 23-25, 2018. Friday and Saturday productions start at 8 p.m. The Sunday matinee will begin at 3 p.m.

Capitol City's 2017-2018 season will close with one of the company's always-popular fun and fund-raising On the Light Side evenings on July 27-28, 2018. On the Light Side-26 will feature music by Leonard Bernstein in celebration of his 100th birthday. The evenings include an outstanding silent auction, a "bring-your-own" indoor picnic, and a cast of singers who will dance their way through the program, having your toes tapping to music from "West Side Story,"  "Trouble in Tahiti,"  "On The Town," and more!

Join us as we explore new performers, timeless classics, and American legends. 
We can't wait to share the season with you!
