GYO Workshops

Glyndebourne Youth Opera Workshops

Every year Glyndebourne Youth Opera provides local young people with world-class performance opportunities and engaging opera workshops open to all. Activity is streamed according to age group:

GYO 1: Ages 9-13
GYO 2: Ages 14-19


Any child living within a 25-mile radius of Glyndebourne is invited to take part in workshops in the Spring and Autumn terms. These introduce young people to the world of opera, through performing, creating and learning about opera from every angle. Any child who takes part in a workshop becomes eligible to audition for a GYO performance project.

GYO Autumn Workshops 2017

Details of our GYO Autumn Workshops will be announced here and to our GYO Mailing List closer to the time.

Our last workshops in Spring 2017 were led by renowned music director Stephen Higgins with input from an exciting team of opera professionals designed to give insight into the artistic disciplines involved in the world of opera. These sessions were designed to give participants the chance to explore some of the different artistic disciplines involved in making opera (including singing, drama, design and language) in a fun and creative way.

Creative team included Director James Bonas, Designer Ele Slade, Italian coach Isabella Radcliffe, Soprano/Vocal Animateur Anna Sideris, Director/Choreographer Denni Sayers, Designer Ellan Parry, Writer Laura Attridge and Pianist Ashley Beauchamp
