Seagle Festival awarded $25,000 grant from National Endowment for the Arts

Seagle Festival, in Schroon Lake, has been approved for a $25,000 Grants for Arts Projects award from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) to support its August 2023 production of Daniel Crozier and Peter Krask’s opera With Blood, With Ink.

This project is part of Seagle Festival’s focus on producing contemporary American Opera in an effort to enhance the resiliency of the art form. Seagle Festival’s project is among 1,130 projects across the country, totaling more than $31 million, that were selected during this second round of Grants for Arts Projects fiscal year 2023 funding.

Professionally premiered in 2014, With Blood, With Ink is a powerful opera based on the extraordinary life of the 17th century Mexican nun, Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz, beloved poet, intellectual, and heroic champion of women’s freedom. Her choice of life in a convent over marriage protected her brilliant creative life until she was betrayed by ecclesiastical authorities. Celebrated as the “Phoenix of America,” Sor Juana is the first great literary figure in the Americas. The opera explores how an individual destiny tragically collides with the implacable forces of history and community.
