Each season, The Atlanta Opera presents three productions with four performances each at the Cobb Energy Centre. Currently, The Atlanta Opera is offering complimentary passes for each Final Dress Rehearsal of the 2011-2012 season to nonprofit organizations serving children and families.
The education sponsored opportunity, called Opera on the Mainstage, will provide selected eligible organizations with proof of 501(c) 3 tax status (tax ID number), a maximum of 25 passes per production, as well as a Study Guide Library for instructional tools and resources related to these productions for use by educators, parents and students.
A minimum of two adult chaperones will be required to accompany each group, with a maximum of five adults per group. Organizations will be required to pay a $35 processing/handling fee, which will be refunded if the application is not accepted. Applications will be accepted separately for each production period, and are available online at atlantaopera.org.
