GO Create; the opera imaginarium, is a new digital resource created to engage young people with opera in an inspiring, accessible and fun way. 

Aimed at ages 11-16, GO Create will throw open the doors to singing, design, composing, lighting, and all the cogs that keep the world of opera turning.

GO Create is filmed at Garsington Opera's home, a beautiful opera house nestled in the Chiltern Hills at Wormsley. This short series introduces young people to the world of opera and everything that goes into making it. On stage, we are used to seeing a wonderful spectacle with singers, dancers, an orchestra and captivating design, but backstage and beyond there is an extraordinary company of people who make this happen. Through GO Create, we lift the bonnet on opera and look at what and who really make it work. We hope this will inspire and inform the next generation of theatre makers to reach their full potential.

All episodes on Eugene Onegin, are now available and can be found in the tab above.

Following initial workshops in schools, our first full project focusses on Tchaikovsky's most famous opera, Eugene Onegin.
