A New Season, a New Edge with the Atlanta Opera’s Tomer Zvulun

Perhaps no one is more enthusiastic about the Atlanta Opera’s new season than Tomer Zvulun. And rightfully so — it’s his first planned season as the company’s General and Artistic Director. Zvulun’s planned three new productions for this Atlanta Opera Season — “Madama Butterfly,” “Rigoletto,” and a contemporary opera, “Three Decembers.” Mozart’s classic “The Marriage of Figaro” rounds out the 2014-2015 season. Lois Reitzes spoke with Mr. Zvulun and asked how he chose these particular operas.

The Atlanta Opera’s production of Madama Butterfly” opens Saturday, November 8 at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre. Mr. Zvulun also co-hosts “Opera with an Edge” — a free season preview concert — on Monday, November 3, also at the Cobb Energy Centre.
