Glyndebourne Autumn Sing with Mary King

This autumn Glyndebourne is offering the chance for aspiring young singers to join renowned singing teacher and Glyndebourne Vocal Talent Consultant Mary King and Annabel Arden, director of Glyndebourne’s 2016 production of Il barbiere di Siviglia, plus an exciting team of experienced opera professionals for three days of practical workshops from 27 -29 October in the beautiful surroundings of Glyndebourne.

Based on Glyndebourne Academy, the programme is ideally suited to young singers (aged 14-19) with a desire to develop as soloists and explore operatic repertoire. Over three days Mary and her team will explore a range of themes and look at some of the key skills singers need to master in opera, including vocal technique, performance and stagecraft, and singing in foreign languages.


The course is open to anyone who is aged between 14 and 19 on 27 October 2016. There is an assumption that singers will be comfortable reading music, but extensive prior experience of opera or solo singing is not a prerequisite. Participating singers must be available to attend all three days of the course.


£250 for the three-day course

£125 for those in receipt of benefits

This includes a ticket to Behind the Curtain on 28 October
