Specially-commissioned chamber opera

Four couples from different times share the same courting path with one another...

Lovers Walk is a piece for young singers (from Glyndebourne Youth Opera and Glyndebourne Young Voices Youth Company), imagining four sets of couples from different points in history and facing different challenges but linked by a common setting – a municipal park.

Performances include Sunday, October 20 at 2pm in the Jerwood Studio, Glyndebourne.
