Join us in our 30th year of education work

2016 marks the 30th anniversary of Glyndebourne’s education department, and we’re celebrating with a number of events, including:

  • World premiere of Nothing, a new opera by composer David Bruce and librettist Glyn Maxwell, featuring a chorus of young singers from Glyndebourne Youth Opera and talented young instrumentalists
  • Glyndebourne Youth Opera performance of new compositions by Glyndebourne’s Young Composer-in-Residence, Lewis Murphy, inspired by the 2016 Glyndebourne Festival production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream
  • Partnership with Battle Festival and De La Warr Pavilion to commission a major new contemporary opera by the internationally acclaimed composer Howard Moody as part of the Root 1066 International Festival to mark the 950th anniversary of the Battle of Hastings.
