Education at Glyndebourne
Ever dreamed of taking part in an opera? What if you could work with the world’s best?
Find out how you can take part in our opera projects and get involved either on stage or behind the scenes.
At Glyndebourne we believe in supporting and nurturing talented young singers and anyone interested in learning more about how an opera house works.
