Capitol City Announces 2014 Season
Capitol City Opera will open its 2014 Season on the weekend of Mar. 7-9, 2014, with the production of the musical thriller, Sweeney Todd, the Demon Barber of Fleet Street, at the Conant Performing Arts Center on the campus of Oglethorpe University.
The company's annual On the Light Side fundraiser, featuring music by Cole Porter, is scheduled for Saturday evening, July 26. The fall main stage production will be Lehar's The Merry Widow.
In addition to these major productions, the company is also planning a black-tie gala fundraiser this fall to commemorate the organizations's 30 years in Atlanta.
In a letter to patrons, CCOC president Cory Colton said the company also anticipates "an expansion of our children's and adult education programs so central to our mission" during the year.
