Jumpstart Your New Opera Project With Tapestry's New Composer-Librettist Speed Dating Event On December 13

One of the hardest steps of the opera creation process is finding a composer/librettist partnership that really works. If you're an opera creator who hasn't previously been asked commissioned to write an opera or been accepted into a workshop or laboratory program, it can be downright challenging to find a creative partner with whom you will click, or even know where to find one.

That is about to change...

On December 13 at the Duke of York pub in Toronto's Annex, Tapestry New Opera Works will be presenting its first Composer-Librettist Speed Dating Event.

Basically a facilitated point of entry event for writers and composers who are eager to get the ball rolling on an operatic project, here's how it will work:
We have long referred to the special collaboration between a writer composer team as resembling a courtship. The first step in creating new relationships is the opportunity to meet new people. Using the structure of a speed dating Creative Artists in Workshop/networking event, this evening will be an opportunity for you to introduce yourself to a variety of writers or composers who are interested in the creation of new opera projects.

Come with an idea or project in mind or come with an openness to learn about new potential collaborations.
At the exploratory session for this program that Tapestry held in September, there was a lot of interest.  Therefore, you're going to need to register well ahead of time to ensure that you get a spot. To sign up for event, call Amber Ebert at 416.537.6066 x224 or email her at ambere [at] tapestrynewopera dot com.
