Mahogany Opera Group To Perform World Premiere Of ‘The Mother’

The Mahogany Opera Group has announced that it will present a staged concert version of the world premiere of composer Laurence Osborn’s “The Mother” on April 25. 2018.

The opera, developed by some of Britain’s most exciting young voices in the art form, is based on an absurdist play of the same name by the Polish playwright and artist Witkacy (Stanisław Ignacy Witkiewicz, 1885-1939). The libretto was written by journalist and writer Theo Merz, a regular collaborator of Laurence Osborn’s.

The project was originally conceived and developed by Frederic Wake-Walker, Mahogany’s Artistic Director through their Various Stages Research & Development programme. It is a showcase of the company’s commitment to supporting the development of work by emerging talent and to championing the benefits of investing in the R&D process with new opera.

“The Mother” is set to star Lore Lixenberg, James Hall, Lindsay Bramley, Geoffrey Dolton, and Rebecca Bottone. Jamie Man will conduct the world premiere.
