Engaging communities and reaching new audiences around our Tour venues.
Creating connections around our Tour
But our relationship with these communities goes deeper; Glyndebourne is resident in each Tour location throughout the year, making opera and music with and for a diverse range of local people.
These residencies culminate in a host of activities that take place alongside our mainstage Tour productions, a programme we call Resound.
This newly commissioned chamber opera composed by Samantha Fernando with words by Melanie Wilson, explores the experience of loneliness and connection in the modern world. You can see it in the Jerwood Studio at Glyndebourne and in intimate performance spaces at each of our Tour venues. Find out more.

Sing with the Glyndebourne Chorus
Opportunities to sing with members of the world-class Glyndebourne chorus. At Glyndebourne we’ll be hosting a 2-hour Mozart masterclass for enthusiastic singers. Plus the chorus will be singing with young people through our local schools’ singing networks in Residency locations, and through the Festive Sing schools concerts at Glyndebourne in December.
Pit Perfect concerts & workshops
Pit Perfect is our development scheme for young professional instrumentalists. Participants and players from the Tour orchestra will join forces with universities in our Residency locations for a series of public recitals and student workshops. Read more about Pit Perfect.
‘Our Tour Residencies aim to develop a deep connection with the communities we visit, and to invite a broad audience to access and experience our world-class opera productions. We’re also reaching out into areas beyond the theatre through specially created performances, and participation projects developed in collaboration with our partners. These creative residencies are year-round, culminating in the arrival of the full touring company in the autumn, creating a real festival atmosphere by bringing together people from all walks of life through music, theatre and song.’
