For composers: Call for applications International Music Theatre Competition Darmstadt
The Staatstheater Darmstadt is looking for composers who are explicitly interested in music theatre.
The competition is comprised of two parts:
In the first part, an international jury will select a maximum of five short pieces (no longer than 20 min. each) to be rehearsed and presented in an evening performance based on a joint theme. The works will premiere during the 48th International Summer Courses for New Music Darmstadt in July 2016. Each commissioned composer will receive compensation totalling 5,000 euros for their work. The joint theme will be determined following the selection process.
In the second part of the competition, one composer from the first part will be commissioned to produce a full-length music theatre piece to premiere in July 2018 at the 49th International Summer Courses at the Staatstheater Darmstadt. This commissioned work can, but doesn’t have to, be based on the previous composition performed in the first part of the competition.
