"Come As You Are" Brings Us Together!

The Atlanta Pride Committee has joined with the Out Front Theatre Company, Out on Film, and The Atlanta Opera to present the Come As You Are Festival. Through two film screenings and one panel discussion hosted by Out Front Theatre Company, we'll gather to watch, celebrate, and listen together.

"The Atlanta Opera is proud to partner with Out Front Theatre Company, Out on Film, and The Atlanta Pride Committee for a series of Community Programs that celebrate gender expression and identity through art." said Jessica Kiger, Director of Community Engagement & Education of The Atlanta Opera.

The featured events will take place at the historic Pullman Yards. This festival features a new production of the blockbuster musical Cabaret performed in repertoire with the critically-acclaimed chamber opera As One.

"The driving force behind the Come As You Are Festival is to create a sense of openness and welcome. As an art form, opera has changed and evolved over its 400-year history, and as we come out of the pandemic, The Atlanta Opera remains as committed as ever to innovating and bringing new experiences to Atlanta audiences." stated Kiger.

"I'm beyond thrilled that organizations dedicated to the queer community and ally organizations can come together for events like these. I think it shows the strength of Atlanta's vibrant arts and unparalleled advocacy communities to find the intersections of what we do and further the conversations that make our city and region a better place for all of us to live." said Paul Conroy, Artistic Director and Founder of Out Front Theater Company.
