Glyndebourne is presenting a ‘fringe’ festival this August thanks to support from the New Generation Programme (NGP) and the Jerwood Charitable Foundation.  Ranging from an exciting new promenade opera by renowned composer Julian Philips to a double bill from Glyndebourne Youth Opera, the extra performances will be held before the main Festival productions on dates throughout August. The pre-performance events aim to give audiences a taste of the work Glyndebourne produces away from the main stage, while showcasing the many talented young artists in its ranks.
