What is the right path forward to find production for a musical theater piece (in English) that is both operatic --  in the sense of complex musical pallette, heroic themes and sung dialog -- and yet has elements of a Broadway-style musical - lighter voices, vernacular rhythms, comic moments?   Neither "backers auditions" nor submitting to major opera companies seems to work.

Priority Strategies for Meeting Fiscal Year Goals
Presented by Marilyn Shapiro

The spring and early summer months are always an intense time for development departments as staff work toward meeting fiscal year goals, especially through individual giving programs. Marilyn Shapiro will draw on more than four decades of opera company development experience to suggest priority initiatives and strategies to consider for maximizing results. The discussion will include renewal practices, major gifts upgrading initiatives, special project funding, strategies for multiyear pledge programs and advice for activating board engagement, as well as time-wasting traps to avoid during this critical time in the development year.
This Hangout On Air is hosted by OPERA America. The live video broadcast will begin soon.
