Gareth Malone at Glyndebourne
Gareth Malone worked on our 2010 community opera Knight Crew as Chorus Master, and the production was documented in the BBC TV series Gareth Malone Goes to Glyndebourne.
Gareth Malone, who first worked with Glyndebourne education in 2000, returned to work on Knight Crew as Chorus Master, helping to find new talent and reach teenagers who would never normally get the chance to appear in an opera. Gareth’s journey, from auditioning the young chorus through to the final performances at Glyndebourne, was filmed by the BBC as a three-part documentary – Gareth Malone Goes to Glyndebourne – which was first broadcast on BBC2 in June 2010. The documentary went on to win an Emmy Award in the Arts Programming category at the 2011 International Emmy Awards.
