Making Knight Crew video: Find out more about the process Glyndebourne goes through when commissioning and casting a new opera for young people like Knight Crew. Featuring interviews with Glyndebourne's General Director David Pickard and Glyndebourne's Head of Education Katie Tearle.
About Knight Crew In March 2010 Glyndebourne staged Knight Crew on the main stage. Knight Crew placed young people and the community centre stage in four performances of a new commission from Glyndebournes first composer-in-residence, Julian Philips.
With a libretto by award-winning author Nicky Singer, it was directed by John Fulljames and conducted by Nicholas Collon. The budget for this significant new commission was £400,000 - all of which was raised from Arts Council England, individual support and trusts and foundations. The four performances were enthusiastically received by capacity audiences at Glyndebourne and by the press.
