Capital Analytics Lights up Atlanta

Focus: Atlanta to highlight economic opportunities in the greater metro area

 April 2017


ATLANTA – Media company Capital Analytics has begun work on Focus: Atlanta, the first publication outside of its home state of Florida. Focus: Atlanta will be the first in an annual series of business reports featuring comments from key industry leaders across Atlanta’s economic spectrum, including heads of major companies and influential institutions.

Focus: Atlanta will highlight key stories of the Greater Atlanta Metro Area’s economy including the growth of technology companies, the entrance of Fortune 500 companies and infrastructure development in community improvement districts. It will include in-depth analysis on all the main sectors of Atlanta such as healthcare, bioscience, higher education, technology, finance, hospitality, logistics and film, music and broadcast media production.

Currently in its third year of publishing the highly praised Invest: Miami, Capital Analytics made the decision to build up its success and move into the Atlanta market because of the substantial opportunities being offered by the city. The publication is being produced in partnership with the development authority, Invest Atlanta, and with the full support of Kasim Reed, Mayor of Atlanta.

Focus: Atlanta 2017 will inform global investors, entrepreneurs and businesspeople of the professional opportunities available in Atlanta, while also highlighting and promoting Atlanta as a great place to do business,” Mayor Reed, said about the publication.

“What we are hearing from companies is that they want to go to a place that is vibrant and exciting because the workforce and the attraction of the right workforce has taken a much higher priority. When they make decisions about where to go they are always thinking about their business and return on investment. For their workforce, they want to make sure that the place is of quality, where individuals can buy a home, go to good schools, and have the great amenities of a city. Atlanta really offers all of that.” Eloisa Klementich, president and CEO of Invest Atlanta told Capital Analytics.

The Capital Analytics team started work on Focus: Atlanta in March 2017, and have already spoken to many high-profile executives and leaders of key organizations in the area. It will be Atlanta’s first and most comprehensive report on its dynamic business climate.

“There is a real drive in Atlanta for innovation and development in this vibrant economic environment. We have found that is translating into enthusiasm for our upcoming publication Focus: Atlanta, which promises to be the most comprehensive business and investment guide published about this exciting city,” said Alex Mazonowicz, managing editor of Capital Analytics.

“I don’t believe there is any other city that has the same spirit of multi-faceted entrepreneurship and community. The entrepreneurialism in Atlanta involves business, community, seniors and kids alike. Atlanta’s uniqueness lies in its collection of different neighborhoods with different personalities.” Faye Di Massimo, general manager of Renew Atlanta, told Capital Analytics.

Capital Analytics produces in-depth business intelligence with a focus on providing comprehensive investment knowledge
on markets within the U.S. to the domestic and global business community in the annual economic report series. Over a six-month research period, it meets with more than 200 top political, commercial and industry leaders to deliver targeted information, in-depth analysis and strategic advice to the global business community on economic trends and investment opportunities.

Its first publication, Invest: Miami, has a global readership and includes among its readers’ top executives working in real estate, finance, technology, trade and logistics, health, hospitality and others. Books are distributed locally, nationally and globally to trade and investment boards, executives of Fortune 500 companies, institutional investors, consulates and embassies, hedge funds, leading chambers and associations, as well as high-level summits and conferences.

The Atlanta Opera mixes the old with the new for the 2017–18 season

The Atlanta Opera mixes the old with the new for the 2017–18 season

The Atlanta Opera will offer a mixture of the tried-and-true classics and the experimental in its 2017–18 season beginning in November with a new production of Richard Wagner’s iconic The Flying Dutchman, and including a world premiere opera.

The opera announced its next season today, which will include four mainstage operas at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre and two others in its Discoveries series at other locations.

“This will be a season that represents the company’s strategic direction,” Tomer Zvulun, the opera’s general and artistic director, said in a press release. “The company’s mission is to create the highest quality operatic and theatrical programming that re-imagines the classics and introduces new works. This season does just that.”

The mainstage season will include The Flying Dutchman, Donizetti’s The Daughter of the Regiment (starting February 24), Bizet’s Carmen (starting April 28, 2018) and Sondheim’s Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (starting June 9).

In addition, the opera will present The Seven Deadly Sins by Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill, which will be directed by Brian Clowdus, Serenbe Playhouse’s artistic director. That opera will open in October as part of the Discoveries series at a location to be named.

The second show in that series will be a world premiere by composer Jake Heggie and librettist Gene Scheer called Out of Darkness: Two Remain at the Theatrical Outfit in April 2018. Based on the lives of Holocaust survivors, the opera will feature Tom Key, the Theatrical Outfit’s artistic director, in a singing role.

“The response to our Discoveries series so far has been overwhelming, which has given us the confidence to offer extended runs of The Seven Deadly Sins and Out of Darkness,” Zvulun said. “Audiences have truly appreciated the opportunity to experience rarely seen productions in unique environments. The sold out performance of Maria de Buenos Aires and Mozart’s The Secret Gardner this season, demonstrated that.”

Look for ArtsATL’s in-depth interview next week with Zvulun, where he will discuss the new season and the future direction of the Atlanta Opera.
