Arts

Glyndebourne Festival                  Ringmer, East Sussex                    May/August 2017

Glyndebourne is unique in the world of opera. It is recognised around the world as one of the great opera houses. Its productions travel worldwide, are performed live in other opera houses and screened in cinemas from New York to Tokyo.  Yet Glyndebourne remains a very English institution. The opera house stands next to the country home of John Christie. Its Festival audiences arrive from far and wide and an extended interval gives them time for an evening meal. Many choose to picnic in the garden. Some sprawl on rugs, others bring tables, candlesticks and ice buckets. Almost all wear evening dress – so travel in style!
