    Opportunity for operatic composers

    Tue, 2017-07-18 07:36
    Expiration of Opportunity:  Tue, 2018-07-17 Entry Fee:  0.00

    Story available to operatic composer:

    If you're taste is for the extreme, I have a story that calls for full blown passion from sword fighting to seduction. From lullaby to laughter. The story is very traditional in an overt sense: royalty, murder, revenge, but the script takes a microscope to the characters and pushes the play to an edgy limit. The result is comedy.
