  • Mission statement

    We formed in 2014, uniting two companies under the artistic direction of Frederic Wake-Walker: The Opera Group and Mahogany Opera.

    We create new opera in new ways, in different spaces and places throughout the UK an internationally, stretching the boundaries of what opera can be and who it is for.

    We collaborate with established and emerging artists and work accross genres and art-forms.

    We are interested in fostering creative relationships with audiences, making opera that is intimate and dynamic.

  • Aims

    Mahogany Opera Group aims to:

    • To commission new work: We have commissioned 15 new operas over the last 10 years from the very best composers and writers - new and established.
    • To engage a wider audience in opera: Our participatory projects bring new audiences to the arts who would not otherwise think of opera as something for them.
    • To nurture young artists: We are committed to working with the best young talent, providing mentoring and nurturing as a vital stepping-stone into the job market.
    • To develop the art form; Small, fleet of foot companies, like us, can challenge established ways of making work. Our work is contemporary and risk-taking.
