Megan Marino: "Seguidilla from Carmen" | Love Letter to Atlanta
Love Letters to Atlanta • 16m
Megan Marino’s Atlanta is a lifeboat in the middle of a terrible storm. The roar of applause in the midst of upheaval.
When she and husband Michael Mayes moved to South Carolina in early 2020, they found solace and success in the company of other performers just three hours drive west.
In her Love Letter to Atlanta, Company Player Megan Marino sings “Seguidilla” from a Carmen created during the pandemic storm of 2020. Her letter salutes the company she made home, the audience that embraced her and the anticipation we all feel about getting back to live, indoor performances. It was filmed in May 2021 at The Atlanta Opera Big Tent and Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre.
Marino’s performance is the fourth of a series of Love Letters to Atlanta, featuring the stellar Atlanta Opera Company Players.
Each Love Letter includes visually stunning capture of a song with great meaning to the singer in a space that has great meaning to Atlanta. Interviews with the artist complete the experience.
