Moltopera Company (Moltopera means "very opera") has been formed in 2011 by the concept of László Ágoston, the present general manager. The aim of Moltopera's young but highly experienced coworkers is to bring new (young) audiences to the Opera halls. The board is built up by a conductor, a pianist, a director and an administrator, we also have a great variety of professionally trained and renowned singers who we can perform any opera with, but we are also opened to work with any musicians/management sharing our best practices.
