I don’t want the show to be over. CYO feels like home.

About CYO

Cambridge Youth Opera broadens the creative horizons of young people through opera. We work with children and young people,offering activities of the highest possible standard, including 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.

More about CYO

Singing with CYO has given me so much more confidence, not just in performing but in everything!

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.
