The annual 24-Hour Opera Project® is back!
I will also be back there to write a new short opera, this year teaming up with the crazy-hilarious folks at Dad’s Garage!
Here’s the idea: An entire opera written and performed in 24 hours. Will the artists crack under the pressure? Will it produce amazing creative results? I’m guessing yes and yes. See what happens when the composers and singers team up with their writers and directors for one harried, red-eye night flight of collaboration, as they work to create cohesive, unique, bite-sized operas.

The Atlanta Opera - The 24-Hour Opera Project (April 2, 2016)
Semi-spontaneous. Dramatic. Hilarious. Unapologetically opera.
The 24-Hour Opera Project®, invented in 2010 by The Atlanta Opera, set the industry standard for semi-spontaneous operatic productions. Since its inception, the Project has generated nationwide buzz and drawn talent from all over the country.
On Friday, April 1, five teams of composers and lyricists from across the country were given 12 hours to write an opera, based on a Shakespearean theme that served as their inspiration.
On Saturday, April 2, The compositions were then be delivered to stage directors who had 12 hours to stage, rehearse and then present their opera at SCADShow later that evening. A panel of esteemed local judges selected the Judges winner, while audience members voted for the Audience Choice award.
Judges Winner: Purple Team/ Audience Choice Winner: Blue Team with "The Stranger the Better"
I will write a new short opera for the The Atlanta Opera sixth annual 24-Hour Opera Project®.
Here’s the idea: An entire opera written and performed in 24 hours. Teams of composers, librettists, stage directors, singers, and accompanists (selected at random) will compose, stage, and rehearse original operas – all within 24 hours.
