Composers and lyricists selected to participate will be randomly paired together, and will have 12 hours to write a 7-10 minute opera. At the end of 12 hours, the pieces will be assigned to a stage director, who will draft singers from a pool of applicants, and have eight hours to rehearse before presenting the scenes in a showcase concert 24 hours after the project begins.
Compositions and performances will be presented to a panel of judges, the audience, and the public via live webcast on Saturday, January 26 at 7:00 p.m. Prizes will be awarded to the judges' choice and audience favorite.
