Sbs at Glyndebourne - Nothing

The world premiere of David Bruce's new opera Nothing

Bijan Sheibani director
Sîan Edwards conductor
Glyndebourne Youth Opera Chorus
Southbank Sinfonia

If someone you knew declared that life had no meaning, how would you convince them it does?

That’s the question a group of teenagers ask themselves in Nothing, a compelling new youth opera that premieres at Glyndebourne this February.

They decide that each of the group must give up an object that means something to them. This starts with toys and clothes, but things quickly escalate as the classmates go to ever more extreme lengths to try to persuade their friend there are things worth caring about.

In Nothing members of Glyndebourne Youth Opera aged 14-19 perform alongside professional singers, with Southbank Sinfonia in the pit. It is the latest in a line of pioneering youth operas that have premiered on the main stage at Glyndebourne.
