Mahogany Opera's Various Stages Festival will be returning to the ICA on 19 March 2020. The festival provides the opportunity for five new operatic projects, all at various stages of development, to showcase material from the work-in-progress and receive feedback from the audiences and from industry professionals. 

Featured will be five entries chosen from an open call, which received over 150 applications from across the country and internationally, alongside two projects from long-term Mahogany Opera collaborators, Rolf Hind and Gwyneth Herbert.

The artistic advisors on the project will include Jessica Walker, singer, writer and educator, Martin Berry, head of learning & participation, Nottingham Playhouse and Frederic Wake-Walker, artist director of Mahogany Opera. They will collaborate with the selected artists and bring their knowledge into the development of the project they are working on; representing a range of disciplines from across the sector, they will share their thoughts, observations and knowledge about how new work is developed.
