Very happy to make this announcement, which I've had to keep mum for a month. I've been chosen as one of the eight new resident artists for the American Lyric Theater's Composer Librettist Development Program. This will start in September and go until next June, with presentations at some cool places (like Symphony Space) and workshops with some amazing opera and theater people. Press release is here.
The roster of current Resident Artists - including those for 2011-12 - is here.
UPDATE: A nice write up from Rochelle at NYTE, and also an update on Tony Ansaro, who completed the ALT program and has been commissioned by them to write a new opera.
