The Neue Oper Wien, Musikverlag Doblinger and the BNP Paribas Foundation have decided to create an international competition which is directed at composer-librettist teams. The goal is the creation of a full-length contemporary opera work for the stage in German, English or French.
The award consists in a cash prize in the amount of 25,000 euros from the BNP Paribas Foundation, a première by Neue Oper Wien in 2011, and the work's publication by Musikverlag Doblinger.
Gerhard Schedl (1957-2000) was one of the greatest Austrian composers of musical theatre works: he knew intimately the needs and possibilities of the not-so-simple task of combining theatre and music.
