WILL THERE BE ANY CHANGES TO WHAT I SEE ON STAGE?
The Festival will be working within COVID-19 guidelines to provide an exceptional artistic experience. Orchestra and chorus numbers have been adapted, as has some of the stage action. None of these adaptations will detract from your experience of enjoying a fully staged opera or concert.
WILL THE AUDITORIUM BE FULL?
Seats will be only available strictly in pairs.
The famous Glyndebourne Festival showcases a spectacular array of musical flair across many weeks in the summer. Audiences flock from far and wide to enjoy the fine music and the ambience of the beautiful surroundings. This level of luxury hospitality is unmatched at any other operatic festival.

Extravagance is encouraged; many bring their own tables, some embellish them with ice buckets and candlesticks, and almost everyone shows up in immaculate evening dress.
