The Long Info:

We’re teaming up with English National Opera to offer a group of AYT readers the chance to experience opera for the first time. AYT’s Editor and Founder Jake Orr has a belief that opera can be a challenging and difficult art form for young people to get into and experience. It was only last year that Jake got to see his first opera and only this year that he went to the Royal Opera House, what about other people his age? Let’s break down those barriers and head to the opera, discuss the challenges and reveal in what we hope will be a fascinating night. They’ll be free tickets, ice cream, programmes, the chance to meet other young people and even a possibility of Q&A with the cast/crew.

Join Jake and Emily Cook, Assistant Producer of ENO Baylis, to start a dialogue about opera.
