Opera, Dance, Musicals

All theatrical presentations (e.g. operas, dance, musicals, plays), whether with live or recorded accompaniment, require permission and a grand rights licence covering royalties payable and any rental materials required.  Similarly, if you wish to film or record a theatrical presentation for audio or audio-visual broadcast, internet streaming (whether viewing is free or paid for), commercial or private release, you need to request permission and an additional licence from us.  To request a licence please email andyberry@hawesmusic.com with a full description of the work in which you are interested, date required, and performance details.

Permissions

A licence is needed for permission to create a new version of an existing work, such as an arrangement or transcription, or to sample an existing work in a new composition. We often require a PDF copy of the proposed score and/or a recording in MP3 or similar format before permission can be granted for these uses. A print licence is also needed for permission to include our works, or extracts of our works (music and/or lyrics) in any type of publication in print and/or electronic format and for both commercial and non-commercial publications. To request a licence please email andyberry@hawesmusic.com with a full description of the work in which you are interested, and any relevant details.
