“[Mahogany Opera Group] has broadened the definition of what opera is, who it involves, where it happens and what aspects of humanity it addresses.” Richard Morrison, BBC Music Magazine
Mahogany Opera Group creates new opera in new ways, in different spaces and places throughout the UK and internationally. Each of its distinct projects aims to stretch the boundaries of what opera can be and who it is for. It works with world-class and emerging artists, creating new works and reinventing existing ones – drawing on a range of cultural influences, theatrical methods, art-forms and technologies and involving local communities in the creative process. The company is resident at King’s College London and works in collaboration with a wide range of venues, performing ensembles and non-arts partners from festivals to venues and from other opera companies to orchestras. It was founded as The Opera Group by John Fulljames in 1997 and became Mahogany Opera Group under its current Artistic Director, Frederic Wake-Walker.
