Composers/Librettists are invited to submit recently composed operatic works suitable for performance by college-level singers and instrumentalists. Portions of a larger work or a one-act opera of approximately 20 - 45 minutes are welcome. Submissions should reflect the intentions of the prize that reflect in some way, issues of tolerance, inclusion and/or the celebration of diversity. Works which explore issues relevant to the LGBT community are particularly encouraged. Winning works will be designated as the 2014 Domenic J. Pellicciotti Opera Composition Winners.
Recently composed, original operas which have not received a professional premiere. Submissions from composer/librettists of any age or nationality, not affiliated with SUNY Potsdam are welcome to submit.
