Belongings is a newly commissioned opera by Lewis Murphy (Glyndebourne’s Young Composer-in-Residence) with a libretto by young up-and-coming writer Laura Attridge which explores the experiences of young people forced by war to flee their homes.

Its world premiere at Glyndebourne in November 2017 will mark 20 years of Glyndebourne Youth Opera (GYO) with a performance company formed of members of GYO groups 1 and 2.

We have now recruited our chorus of local 9 – 19 year olds and rehearsals are underway. Tickets are on sale now – see below for full details.
