Launched in 2007, ALT's Composer Librettist Development Program (CLDP) is the most intensive mentorship initiative for emerging opera composers and librettists in the country, with a highly credentialed faculty and proven track record for developing the skills of gifted artists, incubating successful operas, and fostering lasting collaborations. Prominent alumni of the CLDP include composers Christopher Cerrone, Kamala Sankaram, and Jeremy Howard Beck; and librettists Royce Vavrek, Stephanie Fleischmann and Deborah Brevoort. Audiences around the country are enjoying operas developed through the CLDP and by CLDP alumni at a wide variety of venues, including Lyric Opera of Chicago, Houston Grand Opera, Washington National Opera, Fort Worth Opera, Opera Philadelphia, Opera Saratoga, Utah Opera, Tulsa Opera, Fargo Moorhead Opera, The PROTOTYPE Festival, and many more.
The CLDP is tuition free for artists accepted into the program. In addition, to help make it possible for artists to devote themselves to their activities in the CLDP, ALT is introducing a stipend for all participating artists for the first time this year.
Applications to the CLDP are welcome from any emerging composer or librettist who is a U.S. citizen or legal resident. Artists may apply individually, or as members of a writing team; however, all artists who enter the program are required to collaborate with multiple writing partners. ALT defines an emerging opera composer or librettist as an artist who has acquired significant skills as a composer and/or playwright/librettist through academic study, practice and professional experience; who demonstrates a unique and important musical and/or theatrical perspective that could benefit from intensive mentorship as part of the CLDP; and who has not yet had a main stage work commissioned and/or performed by a professional opera company. Artists' work in other genres often has been performed professionally, as ALT's definition of emerging applies specifically to an artist's development and career stage as a writer of opera. ALT embraces the work of gifted operatic writers from diverse ethnic/racial backgrounds. There are no age minimums or maximums for participation. Three composers and three librettists will be accepted into the program this year.
Candidates for the Dramaturg Apprenticeship are being sought from individuals who have a demonstrated interest in the development of contemporary opera. "We anticipate that the background of applicants for this Apprenticeship will be varied," said Edelson. "We are seeking a highly motivated, creative thinker who is interested in deepening his/her knowledge of opera from both a historical and practical perspective, while participating in a hands-on manner in the development and creation of new works. Candidates may include those with a stage directing background, graduates of theatrical dramaturgy programs, or others with diverse practical experience in the opera field. The successful candidate will demonstrate a broad-based interest and knowledge of opera; sharp critical faculties; exceptional analytical skills and the ability to articulate their opinions in a clear and compelling manner; compassion and understanding of the sensitive nature of the creative process; and the ability to identify both with his/her fellow artists and the audience."
