American Lyric Theater's THE GOLDEN TICKET Live Recording Available for Pre-Order
American Lyric Theater also presents a series of concerts, master classes and public symposia each the season. The company's popular series of public libretto readings, The Living Libretto, takes place at the National Opera Center between December 2012 and February 2013. These events are the culminating readings of extensive libretto workshops conducted for the new operas currently being written by ALT resident artists, featuring guest actors from Broadway and off-Broadway. Following each reading, there is a discussion with the artists moderated by Mr. Edelson. InsightALT, a new festival that offers an intimate, inside look into ALT's process of creating new operas at all stages of their development, takes place between May 29th and June 3rd, 2013, at the Goldman-Sonnenfeldt Family Auditorium, The JCC in Manhattan's state-of-the-art, 250-seat theater. Public readings of the three new commissions at different stages of their development will be at the center of the 2013 festival. InsightALT will also offer the opportunity for the public to attend open rehearsals, participate in a libretto workshop of a fourth new commission (to be announced in early 2013), and join together for symposia curated by dramaturg and ALT principal faculty member Cori Ellison, on topics including "Faith and Religion in Contemporary American Opera," and "Fantasizing History: How operatic writers balance fact and fiction in works based on real life events." (The full schedule of events for InsightALT will be announced in January 2013.)
In June 2012, ALT was the first company dedicated to artist mentorship rather than operatic production to be recognized by OPERA America as a Professional Company Member - a testament to ALT's service to the field.
