Talent development

Pegasus Opera Mentoring Programme

A mentorship scheme for classical artists from African and Asian backgrounds

Glyndebourne is partnering with Pegasus Opera to present a Mentoring Programme, which offers aspiring and emerging artists of African and Asian heritage a bespoke programme of coaching and mentoring opportunities.

The participants will be invited to observe rehearsals and shadow established artists at the Festival 2022, and will be offered opportunities to perform for key artistic staff and receive feedback to aid their development.

Representatives from Glyndebourne will also attend Pegasus Opera auditions and showcases to help Glyndebourne spot emerging talent who can be encouraged to audition for the Glyndebourne Chorus, a proven launchpad for a professional career in opera.

The programme will include mentoring from Alison Buchanan, artistic director of Pegasus, and baritone Roderick Williams, plus a master-class from soprano Danielle de Niese.
