Koanga at Sadler's Wells Theatre, London
Pegasus Opera Company is a registered charity and the UK's leading professional, multiracial touring company with a long track record of staging high quality productions, developing new audiences for opera and presenting productions with which they can identify.
We exist to create opportunities for young black singers from all backgrounds to develop and perform in innovative opera productions. We strive to break down the elitist perceptions so often associated with opera.
Our producitons are chosen from an accessible range of works which tour to medium sized venues, also providing educational programmes and developing new audiences through special workshops, outreach programmes and reaching thousands of children across London and the regions.
As an organisation, we hope to demonstrate the innate value and creativity that lies within a diverse community who work 'as one' with respect for individuality, equality and who aspire to a common purpose; to exalt the power and creativity of the human voice through opera.
In aspiring to realise this vision we will contribute to cultivating an art which serves the community and the world at large, harnessing a power which lies beyond discrimination and stereotyping.
Pegasus is grateful for the support it receives from individuals, government bodies, charitable trusts and foundations.
