Receipt Deadline: April 14, 2003 The Genesis Opera Project is seeking opera proposals and ideas for commissioning and production. The project is open to composers 35 years of age or younger on April 14, 2003, who have not yet had an operatic work performed in a major arts centre. A panel will select six projects to commission for further development. The commissioning panel has a wide range of experience in all aspects of theatre, performance, opera, and musical theatre. The definition of what an "opera" is matters less than the strength and coherence of the musical and dramatic ideas. A two-day presentation or work-in-progress will take place in London in front of an invited audience of performing arts professionals. Three proposals will be selected for full commission, which will consist of GBP 15,000 (approx. US $24,405) and GBP 3000 to the librettist.
