Digital Opera Making Workshops
In May 2020, we were thrilled to receive Arts Council Emergency funding to offer a series of Digital Opera Making Workshops for 11 – 18 year olds, and Stories in Song workshops for primary schools. The Workshops exceeded expectations, unleashing a flood of creativity in composition, story-telling, design and direction concepts. They attracted national attention and have been featured in a major Google Arts Exhibition of youth arts under the first COVID lockdown.
Singing with CYO has given me so much more confidence, not just in performing but in everything!
Cambridge Youth Opera broadens the creative horizons of young people through opera. We work with young people to create age appropriate productions to the highest possible standard. Our activities include everything that goes to make up an opera, onstage and backstage. You don’t need to know anything about opera to join us, but what you find out might surprise you! Our activities are open for everybody. We don’t charge for participation.
I don’t want the show to be over. CYO feels like home.

CYO is looking to expand our Board of Trustees.
CYO is great. The first time at the opera for us, and hopefully not the last.
