Glyndebourne's education department

Glyndebourne’s education department was established in 1986 with the initial aim of complementing the company’s touring activities. While continuing to play an important part in educating potential opera audiences around the country, the department has developed to become a strong creative force in its own right, commissioning many new works and delivering a year-round programme of activity to engage as diverse a group of people as possible with opera.

Glyndebourne’s education projects are run in partnership with other organisations – from schools and charities to government-funded initiatives and local authorities – helping Glyndebourne deliver projects to as broad a group of people as possible.
