The application period is now closed.
Applications for the 2019-20 season will be available Spring 2019.

AOP encourages applications from both composers and librettists working alone, and from composer/librettist teams. Composers and librettists applying jointly need not have prior collaborative projects. Please note: if a composer and librettist apply as a team, the panel reserves the right to select only one of the applicants for an individual fellowship.

Applications are reviewed and fellowships are selected by the C&V Artistic Director, the Director of Drama and Director of Music, and a panel of industry professionals.

There is no age limit for participation.
There is no stipend for selected composers or librettists.
All participants must be in New York City for all workshop dates.
