About this project
This year the Élan International Music Festival will be staging Prodigal Son, a one act opera by Claude Debussy. Opera is a beloved and popular art form, but in this setting it is used as a vehicle to draw a vivid, instant connection between the sound production, breathing and acting of instrumentalists and singers. The production costs for staging even a shorter, simpler production of a chamber opera will be a huge first-time undertaking for the Elan festival. Hiring a conductor, singers and stage management (props, costumes) and renting orchestra parts are all extra expenses that we would like to fund through kickstarter. With your help, Elan believes that this experience is innovating and will open a new avenue of learning for instrumentalists who need to explore new ways of achieving their goals.
