Returning to the Atlanta Opera 24-Hour Opera Project® to write a new short opera

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.
