Delphi Treasury

Delphic Forge, Inc., founded in March 2019, is recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.

Our first project is the promotion of GRACCHUS, a new opera by David Hughes and Richard Munkelt. Set in the late Roman Republic, the work represents a fictionalization of the life of the historical figure Gaius Gracchus, Tribune of the Plebs. The opera is both lyric spectacle and religiopolitical allegory, a music drama in the grand style and “a total work of art” (Gesamtkunstwerk), involving music, poetry, dramatic action, philosophical reflection, and dance, all in scenographic context.

Your donation will make possible the promotion of this exciting new work.  The ultimate goal is the orchestration and full staging of GRACCHUS. As an intermediate step, we are aiming to film and record an orchestral performance of the opera's overture, as well as a pivotal duet. This will round out an operatic portfolio for presentation to theatrical producers.

All contributions received will go to this end, and are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.  To donate securely via PayPal, please click here:
