CCM Opera’s Jonathan Stinson (DMA, baritone) participates in Atlanta Opera’s “24-Hour Opera Project”
Atlanta Opera offered an opportunity for composers and librettists to compete in a exciting and one of a kind opportunity called the 24-Hour Opera Project.
Composers, librettists, stage directors, and singers all participated in the 24-Hour Opera Project. Composers and librettists were randomly paired together, and had 12 hours to write an opera scene. At the end of 12 hours, the pieces were assigned to a stage director, who picked singers from a pool of applicants, and had 8 hours to rehearse before presenting the pieces in a showcase-concert 24 hours after the project began.
CCM Opera’s Jonathan Stinson was selected from a national pool of composers to participate.
This is the exchange between Jonathan and Robin Guarino as the clock started. Atlanta Opera’s blog also chronicled the event from the 2011 24-Hour Opera Project.
