Overview

The Opera in the 21st Century: Creators Lab residency will provide teams of up to five members the exciting opportunity to work together on a new concept for the opera Proving Up (written by composer Missy Mazzoli and librettist Royce Vavrek).

Participants will have access to talented mentors, singers, and production support to test proof of concept for their creations. Concepts will be adjudicated by a panel of senior opera practitioners, and awards will follow.

What does the program offer?

The Creators Lab residency offers a full scholarship for tuition. The program provides a collegial, friendly environment set within Banff Centre’s mountain campus, where director/designer teams will have the opportunity to put together the concept for a new opera production and share it with their peers. 

Teams will be given a concrete idea to start from and will then be given set limits in which to achieve their concepts. Final concepts will be presented to a panel of general directors and opera industry professionals for adjudication. Top concepts will receive an award.

Who should apply?

We welcome applications from emerging stage director and designer teams (costume, LX, video, set) looking to create new operas. Independent opera companies seeking the opportunity to work alongside others in a collegial, creative exercise are also encouraged to apply.
