According to the sponsoring North Gwinnett Arts Association, Arts In The Park will feature some unique entertainment -- opera, for instance. The Peach State Opera will be performing “Operatizers.” These are mini-portions of opera to introduce an artsy experience that some people in the area may never have experienced. The Peach State Opera is a touring opera company that combines beautiful voices and excellent musicianship with “portable” staging for easy travel.
Also, there will be a strolling magician and a 15-piece orchestra.
Circus-themed entertainment will include jugglers, fire eaters, an aerial acrobat performer and a ballet dancer, a news release said.
