Join Us in Building the Next Phase of the Adirondack Folk Opera!
With the music that’s been written, and a strong foundation of historical research, we are ready to take the next step.
We seek support for writing the libretto (the script) and completing the musical score. This will take a team of writers, musicians and scholars. Once this is done, we can proceed to the final phase of a fully-staged production.
You can help us get the libretto and musical score completed with your donation.
