For the second year in a row, the Atlanta Opera is coming to Woodstock. As part of their Studio Tour Productions, the group will present its production “Knightly News” at the Elm Street Cultural Arts Village at 8534 Main Street in Downtown Woodstock on March 2 at 3 p.m.
The “Knightly News” is an operatic news broadcast of the woes of Prince Charming and his Tri-kingdom state of affairs, including his own search for a princess, a missing grandmother, and frighteningly strong winds that are blowing down houses in the land. The show is designed to deliver the message that we are all valuable in different ways.
The program is designed for families with children in elementary, middle, and high school as an interactive and educational opportunity to explore and experience opera together. “Knightly News” features four singers and a pianist. It features music by Jonathan Stinson, Libretto by Sarah Rogecich & Jonathan Stinson, and is directed by Park Cofield.
In addition to the performance at Elm Street Cultural Arts, the Atlanta Opera will be performing the piece for students at Woodstock Elementary the following day.
Founded in 1979, the Atlanta Opera strives to expand the experience of its patrons with memorable and exciting performances while supporting the community through educational programs such as this one.
Tickets are $7 and are available at www.atlantaopera.org
