Moltopera - why are we needed?
Did you know that some shops in London use classical music to keep suspicious youngsters away?
Did you know that according to the BBC, half of teenagers 'never been in a theatre'?
Did you know that according to Classic Fm's survey Millions of Brits never attend opera because it's 'too posh', 'too long' and 'too expensive', 'being full of words that are difficult to understand' - that are the classic stereotypes?
This is where Moltopera steps in.
"I warmly support Moltopera and its music director in their hard but beautiful task.
Wishing you all the best in your crusade!"
singer, conductor, director
member of Opera Star Hall of Fame
Moltopera - what do we do?
While the average age of audiences for classical music in the United Kingdom is increasing (only 7% likely to be aged under 31, while ex. in France it's 17,4%) we go directly to schools and youth communities to open the door of classical music for them.
We give them a key to understand and appreciate the greatest art pieces of humankind - not just opera, but through opera all, the so-called 'high art'. We show them that they must not fear to lose themselves in seeking the meaning, analysing, and we encourage them to be critical!
Moltopera has been founded in 2011, and we have reached over 100 000 young people in 3 countries since. Mostly teenagers from very different cultural backgrounds and social circumstances.
"They have an extraordinary devotion and passion for making opera accessible for young people, that pairs with great musical and artistic quality."
Vice President of Jeunesses Musicales International
(the largest youth music NGO in the world)
Moltopera - who are we?

Laszlo Agoston, the founder of Moltopera, was appointed a Nordic Goodwill Ambassador and gathered followership of 130,000 on Facebook proving his abilities.
At Moltopera, we think about ourselves as a company of friends, a family, and we cordially invite young people to join us.
Join Moltopera, join the world of opera looking beyond the stereotypes and to build a world where more and more people are able and ready for complex thinking.
