I want to... Perform a play, musical, opera, or other staged work
September 13, 2013
"Grand rights" provide the right to perform music as part of a dramatic performance. The point at which a piece becomes a dramatic musical work is not always perfectly clear; institutions should seek counsel if a question arises. Grand rights are usually individually negotiated with the copyright owner, probably the publisher or writer.
Contact the copyright owner of the musical work. Among works that are often performed by universities are those controlled by the following publishers:
- Tams-Witmark Music Library, Inc.
- Rodgers & Hammerstein Organization
- Music Theatre International
- Samuel French, Inc.
Copyright owners set different rates for royalties depending on the work.
