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.

"Post-Millennium Glory" (Prelude to Event #18)

Tonight I'm heading back to the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Center to see the Atlanta Ballet perform Mozart's Magic Flute choreographed by Mark Godden.  He and John McFall, the Atlanta Ballet's Artistic Director, will give a pre-show lecture this evening so I'll be there 7pm to hear that.  Other members of my dance company will also be there to catch the lecture and performance.  If you're a dancer then come on out and join the rest of us tonight, it's not too late to get tickets.

The performance tonight should be quite a spectacle, as is the case for Mozart's opera Die Zauberflöte (The Magic Flute). The Atlanta Opera will perform it in April of 2010. Tonight's performance by the Atlanta Ballet will feature singers, dancers, and an orchestra.  Expect a classic feel and a contemporary look. I believe this production is rated PG.

Food:   Well, some of my pals are thinking about heading over to Chow Baby in the Galleria nearby... all I can think about is the macaroni & cheese over at the OK Cafe.  I'll try to find out where the corps de ballet likes to eat when they are in the area and pass that info along to you.  Tip: Parking across the street from the Cobb Center is free I think, the adjoining parking deck is $5 and the valet service is $10.  Just thought you'd might like to know.
