Opera Ithaca Receives New Music USA Grant to Workshop Developing Opera


Inside the Creative Process invites the Ithaca community to be immersed in the creative process as an entirely new opera is built from scratch. Building on Opera Ithaca’s established commitment to presenting the works of female composers on every season, Inside the Creative Process is currently focusing on the development of We Wear the Sea Like a Coat (Working Title) by Sally Lamb McCune and librettists Rachel Lampert and Yvonne Gray. The community is invited to provide feedback and will ultimately develop a keener understanding of the complicated collaboration between composer, librettist, and producer. Inside the Creative Process will build community interest in the project and point Opera Ithaca and its collaborative partners towards a full production of the opera in development once it is complete.
