Students from Nebraska and Iowa were invited to submit works of poetry on themes of creativity and community. Young alumni composers from the Luna Composition Lab project reviewed all the poems, and through a blind process selected pieces to set to music. These original compositions will be premiered at the Poetry & Music Concert as part of ONE Festival. Opera omaha’s Poetry & Music Project is produced in partnership with Nebraska Writers Collective and Luna Composition Lab.

About Opera Omaha: Opera Omaha, the only professional opera company in Nebraska, began in 1958 as the Omaha Civic Opera Society, a volunteer association, and with a tremendous community support became fully professional by 1970. Opera Omaha produces a season of original mainstage productions, presented in the historic Orpheum Theater, and smaller productions and musical events throughout the community. Opera Omaha is internationally known for its productions of eight world premieres and four American premieres of classical masterpieces and is highly regarded regionally for extensive community engagement and education programs. Opera Omaha’s recently completed 60th anniversary season saw the launch of the ONE Festival, an innovative new spring festival, and a groundbreaking civic action initiative, the Holland Community Opera Fellowship – work that is key to Opera Omaha’s ongoing transformation from a performing arts organization to a cultural resource for the community.
