BAME Opera Commission Opportunity

BAME Opera Commission Opportunity – closing date 23 October 2017

Created in partnership by Curve Theatre Leicester, Gem Arts, Lyric (Hammersmith), Opera North and the Royal Opera House, this opportunity is aimed specifically at BAME theatre-makers, music-makers and writers who are interested in collaborating to create new works and explore new possibilities in opera.

We will select three projects for a development commission and will fully support those artists as they develop their work. Full details can be found on the application form (a link to which is below), but the only essential criteria are:

  • The project must involve one or more collaborators
  • the lead artist for your project must be BAME and be based in the UK – any other artists can be based elsewhere and be of any background

Please use this form to apply

The closing date for expressions of interest is Monday 23rd October at 5pm.

If you have any questions please contact Anwar Ibrahim (Opera Company Assistant) by telephone on 020 7212 9387 or by email to
