The premier festival of opera-theatre and music-theatre
PROTOTYPE: Opera/Theatre/Now, launched this past January 2013, is the annual festival of visionary opera-theatre and music-theatre works by pioneering artists from New York and around the world. A new body of contemporary classical and post-classical work is now burgeoning as an exciting new generation of composers and librettists focus on the creation of chamber-sized pieces in new and unique ways. PROTOTYPE is at the forefront of the movement, showcasing these works for new audiences and presenters alike.
The 2014 iteration of the festival, curated by “contemporary mini music drama...impresarios” Kristin Marting (of HERE), Beth Morrison (of BMP), and Kim Whitener (of HERE), follows up the inaugural season’s smash critical and audience success with seven exciting offerings!
