Mosaic at Grimeborn one scene operas at Arcola Theatre, London features many women composers


Mosaic Opera Collective is group of leading Black and Asian artists and practitioners from a wide range of disciplines dedicated to reinvigorating opera just as much as we celebrate it. Mosaic creates urgent, dynamic and engaging works which bring to the centre our multi-faceted experiences and identities and in doing so, add fresh and vibrant narratives to the operatic canon

The season continues tonight, Thursday August 17th and on to Saturday and SUnday 18th and 19th with two platfroms. Follow the link below for full details. 

Having seen the presentation that will be shown again, tonight Friday 17th August, WiM chair Debbie Golt says 'I highly recommend this mini opera series at the open hearted Arcola Theatre, Dalston, London. I was so delighted to find so many women composers leading in adventurous and beautifully scored and performed one scene pieces with true diversity at their heart'
