When is a performance a grand right versus a small right?
SOCAN represents the "small" performing rights in songs and compositions. When they’re used in theatrical shows and/or operas that combine the music with staging, dialogue, and costuming, it’s referred to as a "grand" right. Anne of Green Gables by Norman Campbell, and The Nutcracker by Pyotr Tchaikovsky, are both productions which have "grand" rights. To obtain a grand right license, you must contact the publisher of the songs and compositions.
