Join the Dramatists Guild for a series of conversations about the art, craft, and business of creating opera!

It can feel lonely to make opera; sometimes, it's hard to find resources, career training opportunities, craft development tools, or chances to connect with kindred spirits. Nevertheless, there is new opera being made all over the country, by people who are fascinated by such an emotional, powerful method of storytelling. If you are one of those opera writers, you are not alone. You are part of a community of librettists and composers, and your Guild is here for you.
