An Orchestra for Its Opera

In July 2020 my childhood dream will come true: My first opera InSOMNIA will premiere at the Opernfestival Oberpfalz! However the festival only has enough funds to finance the accompaniment of a piano without orchestra.
Please help me realize this dream in full color by making a donation that will enable me to to finance an ensemble of musicians in the pit, the way it was originally conceived.

Founded by artistic director Michael Konstantin, Opernfestival Oberpfalz brings opera to regions of Bavaria that don’t usually have access to classical music. Together with librettist Ruth Zapf, Evi Eierberg and composer Raphael Fusco, Opernfestival Oberpfalz will premiere the new chamber opera inSOMNIA in Amberg in 2020.

Donations of €100 or more will be thanked with a video of the composer improvising a piece of music inspired by the donor’s birthdate and favorite color.
