The Education Department, established in 1986, presents a year-round programme to enrich and broaden the appreciation and understanding of opera for both children and adults. The Education programme exists not only to nurture a new audience but also to provide a valuable and creative experience in each of its projects.

Since its creation, Glyndebourne's Education Department has demonstrated that opera can take place in the most unusual places and with people across the community. Many of its participants will never have thought that opera could be exciting, challenging and even life changing.

The Education Department has a full and varied programme largely in the South East but also nationwide. Repertoire based projects include: workshops for music and drama students related to Glyndebourne Touring Opera performances; composition projects, study days, talks and 'Opera Bites', audio introductions to opera. Creative projects include large-scale community operas and operas for young people (Zo, 2000 and Misper 1997, revived 1998). The new opera, Tangiers Tattoo will be an extension of the operas for young people, creating a new work which will appeal to 18 - 30 year olds who have not previously considered opera a medium that they can appreciate and enjoy.

The Education Department is also responsible for co-ordinating Glyndebourne's ongoing commitment to Work Experience.
