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
Two lovers, two communities, a separated family: Agreed tells a story of love and divided lands. Torn by violence and unrest, conscience rises and the people and their leader are forced to accountability.
We have recruited an intergenerational chorus of 80 performers from our local area to bring this opera to life.
Chorus rehearsals will take place from September 2018, with production rehearsals from January 2019, and four performances in the week beginning 25 February 2019.
Agreed is made possible with the support of MariaMarina Foundation, as well as other trusts and individuals through Glyndebourne’s New Generation Programme which invests significantly in developing new audiences and artists of the future.
