Glyndebourne Youth Opera Workshops

Every year Glyndebourne Youth Opera provides local young people with engaging opera workshops open to all

Every year Glyndebourne Youth Opera provides local young people with world-class performance opportunities and engaging opera workshops open to all.

Activity is streamed according to age group:

  • GYO 1: Ages 9-13
  • GYO 2: Ages 14-19

Any child living within a 25-mile radius of Glyndebourne is invited to take part in workshops in the spring and autumn terms. These introduce young people to the world of opera, through performing, creating and learning about opera from every angle. Any child who takes part in a workshop becomes eligible to audition for a GYO performance project.


Preparing for Audition

Glyndebourne, Production Hub
gyo1 – sunday 08 march
GYO2 – SUNDAY 15 MARCH
Cost: £18 (£9 concession – applicable to unwaged families/those in receipt of benefits. Second or multiple siblings in the same family will be charged the discounted rate.)

Join Glyndebourne’s Vocal Talent Consultant Mary King and Movement Director Karen Edwards to explore audition techniques. These workshops will help you to understand what is involved in an audition, improve your skills and will support those considering auditioning for our 2020 Youth Opera. We will unpick a bit of the mystery around what an audition panel might be looking for and help you to make the best of any future audition experience. It will be a fun day, working practically at movement, acting and singing skills.

These workshops are there to support anyone who is considering auditioning for our 2020 Youth Opera and also will equip you for future auditions. Parents will also be invited at the end of the day, to find out how they can support and prepare you for auditions in the future.
