Thanks to its cooperation with the International Theatre Institute (ITI), members of the International Music Council are invited to submit new opera and music theatre works to be considered for the prize presented by Music Theatre NOW, a network of ITI.
The jury welcomes submissions that demonstrate dynamism textually, in genre, score, or staging created by opera and theatre institutions, festivals or individuals.
Special attention will be given to works, whose musical and theatrical vocabulary originates from outside of the Western European tradition.
Music Theatre NOW offers a unique opportunity in this area of the arts. Since 2008 more than 1000 world premieres of new opera and music theatre have been entered into this prestigious competition, bringing together practitioners and presenters. Former winners have performed at festivals around the world. Music Theatre NOW has been the launch pad for many successful international careers.
The deadline for submissions is June 30, 2018. Do not miss this opportunity!
