Scabal and Glyndebourne
Founded in 1934 by John Christie and his opera singer & wife, Audrey Mildmay, Glyndebourne is committed to presenting opera of the highest quality, commissioning new work, developing new talent and reaching new audiences. Glyndebourne is an opera house in the Sussex countryside that is recognised globally as one of the great opera houses.
The Glyndebourne Festival presents six productions each year in a 1,200-seat opera house. Glyndebourne on Tour takes three productions around the UK each autumn. Together, Festival and Tour present about 120 performances a year to an audience of around 150,000. Glyndebourne’s widely respected Education programme hosts over 230 community and outreach events a year. And Glyndebourne has pioneered using recordings to bring its work to a worldwide audience through broadcasts, cinema screenings, DVDs and internet streaming.
