Michael Mayes and the Atlanta Opera go a little bit country

Barihunk Michael Mayes and the Atlanta Opera are teaming up for “From Opera to Opry: Liquor, Love, and the Lord," which will mix music from Puccini, Verdi and Mozart with Johnny Cash, Patsy Cline and George Jones. The December 5th concert will be at the Shakespeare Tavern Playhouse in Atlanta.

Also featured on the program will be soprano Leah Partridge, barihunk Corey Crider (who will also play bass guitar), and tenor Jonathan Burton. The performance will be accompanied by Rolando Salazar, who is Assistant Conductor, Interim Chorus Master, and the Music Administrator for The Atlanta Opera. The promo asks whether “I loved her and she left me" is a line from a country song or an aria.

The program was previously performed in December 2016 and from all accounts was hilarious. It features the country stylings of Cletus McHatfield and the McHatfield Fambly Singers.

Dinner and drinks are available for the performance and tickets are available online.

Michael Mayes will return to the Atlanta Opera on June 12, 2018 in the title role of Sondheim's Sweeney Todd, which also features fellow barihunk Joseph Lattanzi as Anthony Hope.
