Atlanta, like a phoenix rising from the ashes to rebuild itself after the burning of the Civil War, is the capital and most populous city of Georgia. Hosting the 1996 Olympic games, and a national center for the arts, Atlanta is home to significant art museums and institutions. Atlanta is one of few United States cities with permanent, professional, resident companies in all major performing arts disciplines such as opera, ballet, orchestral music, and theater. From Broadway musicals to local productions, Atlanta’s theatre scene has a lot to offer. Experience award-winning musicals, visits to The Fox Theatre, and a visit to Atlanta’s own critically-acclaimed Tony Award-winning Alliance Theatre, famous for world premieres, theatre classics and even children’s shows is a must! You will depart on October 5th to spend four wonderful days discovering the theatre, history and culture of Atlanta. “Behind the Scene” tours and acclaimed theatre productions culminating with the exciting production of Luzia by Cirque de Soleil make this trip a once in a lifetime experience. Bring these amazing memories home with you on October 8th.
