Agreed 2019

You are invited to be a part of a brand new opera

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 are recruiting an intergenerational chorus of performers to bring this opera to life.

Who we are looking for

  • Glyndebourne Youth Opera 1 (aged 12 -13 only)
  • Glyndebourne Youth Opera 2 (aged 14-19)
  • Adults aged 20 or over of any voice type

Rehearsal commitment

Chorus rehearsals will take place from September 2018, with production rehearsals from January 2019, and four performances in the week beginning 25 February 2019.

A full rehearsal schedule will be shared with everyone who signs up for an audition.


You must live within 25 miles of Glyndebourne to be eligible for an audition.

  • To be eligible for a GYO audition you must be 12 by Monday 3 September.
  • To be eligible for an adult audition you must be 20 by Monday 3 September.

Auditions have now closed. We will notify auditionees of the outcome of their audition by the end of May 2018

​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.
