Music & Cultural Events - Glyndebourne Visit 2018

By Chris Coates,  Cultural Correspondent 

We propose to go to Glyndebourne again in 2018. The tour productions will be Verdi's La Traviata and Massenet's Cendrillon (a French version of Cinderella). Glyndebourne have not published the exact dates yet, but it will be October/November. The committee will take a vote on which opera to see, and pick a date (probably around the last week of October). 

Please contact Chris via the committee page before MAY 7th if you are interested as tickets must be purchased early if we want to go as a group. 

In October 2017 we saw The Barber of Seville, by Rossini. (For our Chairman and a couple of others, it was the first visit to a barber for some years..). We met before the show, grabbed some tables, and had a bit of a picnic, with wine and nibbles. The opera was very good - nice scenery and effects, and as always, lovely singing and orchestra.

Chris Coates will organise this, if we can get a group of 12 or more. (Booking as a group allows you to book 2 weeks earlier than individuals. Booking date to be announced, but will be mid-May).

Please note that this trip is not limited to committee members - all members of the Group are welcome, with partners and friends.
