American Lyric Theater (ALT) was founded in 2005 to build a new body of operatic repertoire for new audiences by nurturing composers and librettists, developing sustainable artistic collaborations, and contributing new works to the national canon.
Composer Librettist Development Program: Founded in 2007, the CLDP is the first (and still, the only) full time professional mentorship program for gifted emerging operatic writers in the United States.

Commissions: ALT Commissioned The Golden Ticket, a new opera based on Roald Dahl's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, from American composer Peter Ash and British Librettist Donald Sturrock in 2007. The Golden Ticket received its world premiere at Opera Theatre of Saint Louis in June 2010 in a co-production between OTSL, Wexford Festival Opera in Ireland (who presented the European premiere in October 2010), and ALT. In 2010, ALT commissioned The Poe Project, a trilogy of new one-act operas inspired by the fiction of Edgar Allan Poe. ALT is currently developing 2 additional full-length works, including La Reina by Jorge Sosa, an electro-acoustic opera with text in Spanish and English that draws its narrative from the ongoing war against drugs in the United States and Mexico.
