About The Assembly Project

Founded in 2015 by Artistic Director Alasdair Nicolson and Executive Producer Bethany Alexander, The Assembly Project brings together artists in collaborative, multi-disciplinary performances. We are interested in the connection between words and music – collaborations with the spoken word, opera, music theatre and song. We work with existing repertoire as well as creating, commissioning and developing new work. At our heart is a dynamic and versatile ensemble of singers and instrumentalists delivering extraordinary new opera, concerts, workshops, world premiere performances, collaborations with community groups, site-specific experiences and more.



The Assembly Project was founded by Executive Producer Bethany Alexander and Artistic Director Alasdair Nicolson. We collaborate with a wide team of world-class musicians and artists, directors and designers, producers and partners to grow and present excellent new music, creative productions, learning and community engagement opportunities.



The Assembly Project is a registered charity with a skilled board of trustees:
