GOArts is short for Georgia Open Arts Month which takes place each October.
It's a collective campaign to raise awareness about arts in our area.

Last October, I took up a challenge to see 31 shows in 31 days and blog about it... in the end, I saw 41.
Sure, it was a bit tiring but it was also an amazing opportunity.

The column on the left is a linked schedule of everything I saw.
For a more logical read of this blog o'adventures, scroll down to the first entry and start reading there.

I'm not a reviewer, nor am I an art critic.
I aim to raise public awareness about the great tapestry of arts & culture in our area and inspire you to get out there and enjoy it.

An Evening of Sophistication (and probably Taco Bell) (Prelude to Event #9)

On my way out to see this now. How can you resist? Just listen to this!

This is the Atlanta Opera's 30th Anniversary Season. There are only two performances left for The Elixir of Love... tonight at 8pm and Sunday afternoon, Oct. 11 at 3 p.m. I am especially excited to see Yoel Levi return to the conductor's podium for this performance. And it will be fun to see Georgia native and Metropolitan Opera soprano Leah Partridge. Tenor Bruce Sledge will try hard to win her heart for the rest of the night.

The venue, the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre is easy to get to with plenty of parking ($5 in the adjoining parking deck, I think.) And yes... I'll probably dine at the acclaimed and perennial favorite of people on the run... Los Belles de Tacos.
