The New York City Opera is gearing up for its 2019 production of “Stonewall” by asking for support via Patreon.
“Today we are launching a campaign via Patreon allowing you to commit to a monthly gift in support of Stonewall. You can even choose which part of the opera you would like to support— from production elements like lighting, set design, and costumes, to supporting talent right down to the breakroom tea and honey for our hard-working singers,” the company stated in a release.
The work will be written by Mark Campbell, with music by Iain Bell. Leonard Foglia has been signed on to direct.
The company is seeking out micro-donations of $1 per month with those crossing the $10 per month threshold getting a chance to attend a dress rehearsal for the show.
“Stonewall” is being presented as part of the company’s annual Pride Series which included “Angels in America” in 2017 and the US Premiere of “Brokeback Mountain” this season.
