The Atlanta Gay Men’s Chorus performs tonight and Saturday its “Divas 2: Opera Revisted” — a concert including the rich repertoire of music such as Bizet, Bernstein and Wagner among many others. This concert is a sequel the AGMC’s popular one-night performance in 2008 titled, “Divas and Dilemmas, Opera Our Way.”
And this won’t be some kind of uptight opera affair — AGMC’s performance this weekend includes The Three Little Mermaids and reprise of the Anvil Chorus, “complete with hammer-hauling hunks.”
In 2008, the opera concert was held at the home of the Atlanta Opera. Today and Saturday’s shows moves the chorus to a new venue at the Conant Performing Arts Center at Oglethorpe University, also the home of the Georgia Shakespeare Festival. the Conant Performing Art Center address is 4484 Peachtree Road NE, Atlanta, GA 30319.
