Riverstone supports Glyndebourne cover artists
We are very pleased to announce a new partnership with Riverstone for 2023.
Riverstone – who offer the very best in London living to people over 65 – will proudly be supporting the training of young singers at Glyndebourne through our established cover artists programme.
For each production, we contract a complete second cast, known as cover artists, to act as understudies. Cover artists receive a substantial five weeks of intensive rehearsals led by the production’s assistant director and assistant conductor who, like the singers, gain vital professional experience from the process. Rehearsals culminate in a showing at which the cover company performs the opera in full in front of Glyndebourne’s artistic administration department and an invited audience of opera industry professionals and agents. In Festival 2023 over 40 singers will be part of the Cover Artists programme.
Riverstone is on a remarkable journey, to offer the very best in London living to people over 65. Find out more about Glyndebourne’s partnership with Riverstone.
