Art at Glyndebourne

Tour Art Competition

2019’s Tour Art Competition challenges new artists to submit an artwork based on the theme of ‘Lost and Found’

Visual arts have always been an integral part of Glyndebourne on and off the stage and the annual Tour Art Competition, which has been running since 2013, offers a platform for new artists to raise their profile.

2019’s Tour Art Competition challenges new artists to submit an artwork based on the theme of ‘Lost and Found’.

Lost and Found: our theme for 2019

The theme for this year’s competition is ‘Lost and Found’, a common thread in the three operas on tour in 2019. In Verdi’s masterpiece Rigoletto, the Duke’s jester loses his innocent daughter Gilda to his master, and his revenge leads to tragic results. The hero of Handel’s Rinaldo must come to the rescue of his beloved Almirena who has been kidnapped by a wicked sorceress. In Donizetti’s L’elisir d’amore, Nemorino is losing in his fight for Adina’s affections against his rival, the dashing soldier Belcore, until a magic love potion offers hope.


Congratulations to the 11 shortlisted entries for Tour Art Competition 2019. The shortlisted artworks will be displayed at our Tour Art Exhibition this autumn. The winner will be announced in October.
