Centering on opera's fascinating outsider characters, The Atlanta Opera's 2017/18 mainstage season opens November 4 with Wagner’s The Flying Dutchman, in a new production by Zvulun, followed by Bizet’s Carmen, Donizetti’s The Daughter of the Regiment, and Sondheim’s Sweeney Todd. With these productions, TAO celebrates its 10th anniversary at the stunning, acoustically superior Cobb Energy Performing Arts Center.
The Discoveries Series returns in the fall for its fourth season. In response to quickly sold-out spring 2017 productions, this season will feature an expanded number of performances. The series includes Kurt Weill’s The Seven Deadly Sins, directed by Serenbe Playhouse Artistic Director Brian Clowdus, and the world premiere of Jake Heggie’s Out of Darkness: Two Remain, directed by Zvulun and starring Theatrical Outfit Artistic Director Tom Key.
Zvulun spoke with Schmopera about discovering Wagner and what he's most excited about in 2017/18.
