The Atlanta Opera presents the 24-Hour Opera Project
Fri., Jan. 20, 6 p.m. 2012
Free and open to the public
The Atlanta Opera is proud to present the second annual 24-Hour Opera Project. Composers, lyricists, stage directors and opera singers from all over may apply to compete. Composers and lyricists selected to participate will be randomly paired together, and will have 12 hours to write an opera scene. At the end of 12 hours, the pieces will be assigned to a stage director, who will draft singers from a pool of applicants, and have 8 hours to rehearse before presenting the pieces in a showcase-concert 24 hours after the project begins.
The deadline to apply is December 15, 2011.
