Take Part

Glyndebourne Youth Opera Performance Projects

We are committed to enabling local young people to access unique world-class operatic experiences, with exceptional performance opportunities at the very heart of our programme.


GYO performance projects have rightly earned a reputation for excellence and places are in high demand. Each year performance companies drawn from GYO1 and GYO2 get the chance to tackle challenging, exciting (and often new) repertoire under the expert tutelage of our Directors and Music Directors. Auditions enable us to maintain this standard, and to be as fair as possible, places will always be allocated at audition on the basis of aptitude and suitability for the role.

Can I take part?

For those who haven’t been in a GYO performance company before it is a requirement that you attend at least one of our open workshops before you are eligible to audition.
