Opera Grants for Female Composers will provide support for the development of new operas by women, increasing diversity across the field.
Discovery Grants (2014) will identify, support and help develop the work of female composers writing for the operatic medium. Commissioning Grants (2015) will help support the production of works by talented women composing for the opera stage by OPERA America Professional Company Members.
OPERA America invites proposals for Discovery Grants of up to $15,000 from female composers able to document their ability to create operatic works. Grant recipients will have the opportunity to meet leaders in the field and the chance to participate in Forum meetings and annual conferences.
