7.Reminder: Opera production award, deadline 17 May 2012

The Arts Council's Opera Production Award is designed to encourage partnership-based proposals from those wishing to produce and present an opera at either main scale, medium scale or small scale.

The award is intended to support the making and presentation of opera productions during 2013, in line with the Arts Council's published policy for opera.

Applicants may seek support for the production of opera at varying scales, such as:

  • Main scale opera for presentation to audiences in larger
  • Small and medium scale opera, for presentation to
    audiences in small/medium venues

The emphasis of the award centres on encouraging a collaborative approach to opera production based on partnerships between artists, producers and presenters. The term producers here refers to artists/individuals/organisations with a significant track record in opera production and the term presenters can here refer to venues, festivals or others.

The deadline for applications (i.e. for activity due to take place in 2013) is Thursday 17 May 2012.

The award is open to organisations, groups and individuals working in collaborative partnerships. Applicants in receipt of Arts Council funding via the Regularly Funded Organisations/ Annual Funding and Annual Programming grant programmes will be eligible to apply, provided it is clear that the activity for which funding is sought is additional to and is distinctively complementary to activity
supported by any other funds provided by the Arts Council.
