Support ALT

ALT is proud to offer our unique mentorship program free of charge to gifted operatic writers. We are also honored to be able to commission new operas from some of the country’s most exciting composers and librettists, and to provide a supportive home where these artists can develop their craft as well as their unique voice. But, we can only move our programs forward with the support of generous donors, like you. Great operas don't just happen. Your support enables ALT to make them happen.

THE ANDREW W. MELLON FOUNDATION
$50,000 CHALLENGE!

In honor of the 10th Anniversary of the Composer Librettist Development Program, in addition to its ongoing support of ALT, The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation will match all new and increased gifts made this season to support the CLDP, up to $50,000! This challenge grant will allow us to deepen our support of emerging writers, help us create the first training program for an opera dramaturg in the country, and support a new documentation initiative that will allow ALT to share its proven method of training artists with other opera companies and conservatories across the country.
