Opera for All Voices Commission

The Opera for All Voices consortium chose "This Little Light of Mine" for one of their two 2018 commissions. The initiative was established to create works to attract audiences of all ages who may not have had an exposure to opera. The seven companies currently in the consortium — Lyric Opera of Kansas City, Minnesota Opera, Opera Theatre of Saint Louis, San Francisco Opera, Santa Fe Opera, Sarasota Opera, and Seattle Opera — are working together to create new works flexible in both scope and scale which can be performed in a variety of venues off the main stage. The operas focus on storytelling in imaginative and compelling new ways. The teams behind these commissions were selected through an invitational process and adjudicated by a jury of 12 distinguished individuals in the field of opera. Read the press release below:
