Education at Glyndebourne

Ever dreamed of taking part in an opera? What if you could work with the world’s best?

Find out how you can take part in our opera projects and get involved either on stage or behind the scenes.

At Glyndebourne we believe in supporting and nurturing talented young singers and anyone interested in learning more about how an opera house works.

We also know you never stop learning and our education work is not just for school children. We hope that our audiences will learn more about opera via our opera guides including Don Pasquale and La traviata.

Upcoming events


A new commission for 2019, Agreed is a large-scale community opera premiering in February on the Glyndebourne stage. Written by composer Howard Moody and directed by Simon Iorio featuring world-class singers and accompanied by the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, we are now recruiting an intergenerational chorus of performers to bring this opera to life.
