The composer-in-residence fosters and showcases the talent of Irish and international composers to craft composition, re-orchestration, or new commissions, with world-class artists and performers through individualised creative exploration in fully-staged, scened, chamber or short work opera formats. The initiative is directed at composers of all professional levels who see opera as a significant component of their future creative work.
