The Atlanta Opera Announces App-Based Screening Measure for Live Performances

By Logan Martell

The Atlanta Opera has announced a new series of safety measures designed to help protect audiences as the company launches its 2020-21 season.

Patrons who purchase digital tickets will only be able to access them after answering a health survey via the company’s app; tickets may only be accessed after passing the screening. This new precaution comes in partnership with InstantEncore, an American-based tech company whose Appscension service allows arts companies to launch their own mobile apps.

“InstantEncore has been an exceptional partner from the start. When we returned to performances post-pandemic, we knew that a health screening was going to be a new-normal part of the experience,” said Ashley Mirakian, Chief of Marketing and Audience Development for The Atlanta Opera. “Without missing a beat, InstantEncore jumped into development. This was a collaborative process that I’m happy to say, has kept our patrons, staff and singers safer.”

The Atlanta Opera is currently set to perform “Pagliacci” and Ullman’s “The Kaiser of Atlantis,” with both productions running until November 14, 2020.
