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.

Unfortunately the ongoing uncertainty around COVID-19 means GYO workshops are on hold until further notice.

We encourage new participants to join the GYO mailing list to receive further details of GYO workshops and performance projects as soon as they are announced.

Criteria – to take part you must live within a 25 mile radius of Glyndebourne and be aged between 9 – 13 years old for GYO1 workshops or 14 – 19 years old for GYO2 workshops on the day the event takes place.

Participant quotes

This workshop was brilliant and it was really good to have a full performance by the end of the day! I also liked having the freedom to put your own twist and ideas into your work.’ Get a Move On: Animal Movement workshop participant, 2019
