Glyndebourne has been investing in filming its operas since 2002 and has built up an extensive collection of its iconic productions.
This enabled the opera house to run a digital festival in place of the 2020 Glyndebourne Festival, which was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The popularity of those broadcasts, which together attracted more than 850,000 views,
has inspired Glyndebourne
to create a platform
that can offer year-round access to its operas.
The company will also continue to offer regular, limited period, free streams as part of its efforts to make its work accessible to a broad audience.
Stephen Langridge, artistic director of Glyndebourne, said:
"Last summer's digital festival highlighted the huge appetite for Glyndebourne opera all around the world.
"Glyndebourne Encore is a response to that audience demand and will offer the chance to watch our productions in full whenever you choose.
"But that's not all. Every month we'll be delving deep into an individual opera to offer revealing insights and interviews to help people get the most out of every opera."
Glyndebourne Encore will also house a number of audio recordings from the Glyndebourne label.
Glyndebourne Encore launches on 1st December 2021 and can be accessed via any web browser, Android / iOS mobile phones and tablets, Roku and Amazon Fire TV.
