Call for proposals - Various Stages Festival 2017

In early 2017 we present the third edition of our Various Stages Festival. The festival opens a window on to our research and development programme, in a series of curated workshops, in-progress sharings and feedback sessions. It is a chance to discover our work that is in the process of being made and to see how we interrogate ideas to make new opera and music theatre.

As we broaden the scope of our work, we are opening up the festival and inviting other artists to join us for the first time, offering the opportunity to workshop and share in-progress ideas as part of our Various Stages process. 

We would like to hear from artists who wish to develop a new music theatre idea. For us, music theatre is music-driven work where the musical and theatrical dramaturgies are held in equal importance. Music theatre builds on, but is distinct from, traditional opera. Our definition of ‘artist’ is loose. Artists might be music theatre, opera, theatre, dance, performance artists, individuals or groups/companies. Experience in traditional or contemporary opera is not necessary.  

The deadline for submissions has now passed. We'll be announcing the featured Various Stages projects in the autumn. 

If you would like to be kept up to date on future opportunities, send your details to or join our mailing list
