BMP: Next Generation is a new initiative to discover the next generation of music-theatre and opera-theatre compositional voices. The two finalists chosen in the 2018 cycle, Michael Lanci and Emma O’Halloran, return to National Sawdust in February to showcase new and original 30-minute works. Lanci’s satirical operetta will tackle a congresswoman’s revelation about climate change and the effects of money in politics. O’Halloran’s monodrama about the inner life of a murderess explores how our secret personal history gets misrepresented in the public eye. Following the performance, one of these two finalists will receive a commission for a full evening-length operatic work to be developed, premiered, and toured by BMP.
