American Lyric Theater Announces Call for Applications for the 2017-18 Composer Librettist Development Program
February 15 - March 31
Lawrence Edelson, Founder and Producing Artistic Director of American Lyric Theater (ALT), announced that applications for the next cycle of the company’s nationally acclaimed Composer Librettist Development Program will be accepted from February 15 to March 31, 2017. There is no fee to apply for the program. ALT will celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the CLDP – the only full-time professional initiative in the country to mentor emerging opera composers and librettists – during the 2017-18 season. In tandem with this milestone, Edelson announced two enhancements to the program: the introduction of stipends for artists accepted into the program; and the creation of the first comprehensive apprenticeship for an opera dramaturg in the United States.
