These four brand-new 30-minute operas are written and composed by alums of NYU Tisch School of the Arts’ Graduate Musical Theatre Writing Program, as part of the Advanced Opera Lab led by Randall Eng, Associate Arts Professor of GMTW, and Sam Helfrich, Associate Arts Professor of Design for Stage & Film at Tisch. The operas are designed by Tisch students from the Design Department and choreographed by students from the Dance Department, directed by students from the New School, and performed by professional opera singers from American Opera Projects. Some of the works are set on the night of the Stonewall uprising; others focus on Stonewall’s impact on societies as disparate as contemporary Ukraine and a post-apocalyptic 2418.
