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.

Agreed – Performances for Schools


In February 2019 we are staging a brand new opera called Agreed, written by composer Howard Moody and directed by Simon Iorio. Agreed is a large-scale community opera performed on the Glyndebourne stage with world-class singers and accompanied by the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment. Our Performances for Schools offer the unique experience of Glyndebourne’s world-famous auditorium filled entirely with students, a special introduction on stage, and then all the emotion, spectacle and intensity of a Glyndebourne opera, full-length and fully staged.
