The 2018 Domenic J. Pellicciotti Opera Composition Prize
The Domenic J. Pellicciotti Opera Composition Prize was founded by Dr. Gary C. Jaquay to honor his life partner Domenic J. Pellicciotti, an ardent fan of opera. The award seeks to encourage and acknowledge the creation of new opera works that explore themes related to tolerance, inclusion or the celebration of diversity within an inclusive community.
The prize will be awarded every four years. Criteria for the $25,000.00 commission will be announced by February 2015.
