MCYO 2020 

Opera for Film

As the arts confront the crisis brought about by COVID-19, Manchester Contemporary Youth Opera (MCYO) has launched a collaborative project, Opera for Film.

Two creative teams of young people aged 18-25 have created operas designed for screen rather than stage. The work will be screened online, with the premiere on Wednesday 16 September at 7pm. More details can be found here:


Manchester Contemporary Youth Opera is a summer course for singers, composers, writers and instrumentalists. Each year, new operas are written, and staged during an intensive two-week course. The company is led by the participants with support from professional mentors in the areas of movement, character, voice, composition, improvisation, and contemporary music performance.
