The culmination of a series of music, dance and design workshops, this unique staged performance will entertain, puzzle and delight…

Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment

The OAE is, alongside the London Philharmonic Orchestra, one of Glyndebourne’s orchestras in residence. Since 2001 they have not only performed in the Festival, they have also collaborated on education projects. Most recently players joined forces with students from Varndean College and Blatchington Mill School to perform extracts from Handel’s opera Rinaldo and pieces composed especially by them in response to the original.
