Opportunity for Composers of Opera: New Zealand Opera School

The New Zealand Opera School is seeking submissions from composers with an existing opera or part of an opera work yet to be completed, which has not previously been realised in a public performance. Through the success and ongoing development of the School it is offering to workshop a one act opera or part of a large scale work with selected students. The chosen work will be rehearsed over the course of the week under the musical guidance of Michael Vinten and Bruce Greenfield. This will lead to a public performance, staged by Sara Brodie, at the Wanganui Opera House.

Submissions of scores and any supporting material should be sent to 12 Rodney Avenue, Te Horo Beach, 5581 Kapiti Coast by September 31st, 2010. Candidates will be informed by 10th January 2011.
