The sixth round of calls for proposals for the funding initiative NOperas! is now open. This gives theatre-makers the opportunity to realise a music theatre project in cooperation with several German-language municipal theatres throughout Germany during the 2024/25 season.
Teams that are jointly responsible for the interplay of the theatre levels (composition, text, direction, stage) can apply throughout Europe until 17 July 2023.
Participating in the current cycle are the Staatstheater Darmstadt, the Theater Bremen and the Musiktheater im Revier Gelsenkirchen. The Staatstheater Darmstadt will be the first theatre to produce.
The projects supported by the Fonds Experimentelles Musiktheater (feXm) will be decided on by a jury of experts made up of representatives of the funding body and the participating theatres as well as three independent experts from the field of contemporary music theatre.
The jury’s decision is expected to be announced in September 2023.
