OperaFirst at Wormsley

OperaFirst gives an exceptional opportunity to a new generation of young people to attend a full-scale professional performance at Wormsley, while also giving a valuable opportunity to our Alvarez Young Artists to perform to a warm and enthusiastic audience. 

Each of the 600 young audience members will have studied elements of the music and story before attending the performance. At Wormsley they are also introduced to the backstage departments of Garsington Opera, giving them an insight into the technical aspects behind each production, including stage management, costumes and makeup.
