Music & Cultural Events - Glyndebourne Visit - 2018 and 2019 ?

By Chris Coates,  Cultural Correspondent 

A group of us went to Glyndebourne again in 2018, to watch the Autumn Tour production of Massenet's Cendrillon (a French version of Cinderella), as none of us had seen it. 

It started at 4.00pm, which is earlier than usual, but it did mean we were able to see the gardens in daylight, and it was a beautiful sunny afternoon!

I think everyone enjoyed it, as the music was nice. The story was bonkers, but close enough to the panto that we knew what was happening.

In  Autumn 2019, the Tour productions are Rigoletto (Verdi), Rinaldo (Handel) and L'elisir d'amore (Donizetti).

I've seen Rigoletto, and I don't fancy Handel, so I hope to see the Donizetti.  If anyone from Sussex fancies coming along again as a group, we'll ask for names in the spring, before booking opens in May.
