Manitoba Underground Opera was founded on Treaty 1 land, and the homeland of the Métis Nation. These lands are the traditional territories of the Anishinaabeg, Ininiwak, and Nakota Nations. In addition, our tours extend throughout the province of Manitoba, also encompassing Treaties 2, 3, 4, and 5.
As expressed in our Mission and Guiding Principles, MUO believes that our historic roots help to orient us today, and we acknowledge that we are telling stories on lands that have witnessed storytelling over thousands of years. We also acknowledge that opera has not always been welcoming of communities of colour, including Indigenous communities. We are committed to collaborating with Indigenous communities, and believe in the arts as a driver of dialogue and change.
Become a Friend of the Underground today with a monthly donation. Because of you, young Canadian artists are getting on stage to tell stories and introduce opera to new audiences.
