Le nozze di Figaro 2013
Your reviews of the 2013 Festival production
We had a wonderful afternoon and evening and enjoyed every moment. Hope we can come back another year.

Two great cultural experiences in one. The opera was as flawless as you might expect - thoroughly professional in all aspects, with particularly good sets and lighting; but picknicking on the lawn, dodging the summer shower, surrounded by good humoured fellow opera-goers glammed up to the nines, was highly entertaining and memorable in its own right. Glyndebourne thoroughly lived up to its great reputation the night we were there for Figaro.

Perfect picnic. Delightful drinks. Fabulous food. Smashing singing. Poetic!

This was my third visit to Glyndebourne and definitely the best. The organisation and friendliness of all the staff was exceptional and made it a very special occasion for my first time guest.
We had a Glyndebourne picnic which was exceptionally good value and we were blessed with fantastic weather.
The performance was top quality as usual combining humour, theatrical performance and some incredible vocal performances (most outstanding were the Contessa and Cherubino).
We will definitely return, well done and keep up the good work.

Wonderful music, thrillingly performed; fabulous set - first time we've seen a car actually drive onto the stage - and what a lovely old car! Cherubino was absolutely delightful. Our best ever Glyndebourne. How can it get any better?!

A production of the highest quality and entertainment. The sets and the use of the revolving stage were magnificent, and the singing and acting made it hard to single out exceptional performances as they were all exceptional, as was the orchestraql performance and the overall musical direction from the rostrum. We especially remarked on the highly effective juxtaposition of Moorish and 60s contexts - we don't know why, but it worked so well. Brilliant!
Tony & Adrienne Maynard 6th August 2013
Very unusual production which totally succeeded and portayed this opera in a very different light. Very strong singing overall, with Figaro quite exceptional. very successful and enjoyable evening.

Like many others I was a Glyndebourne virgin and found the whole conception immaculate. The music was sublime, the performances outstanding and the picnic sumptuous. And the sun shone too. Wow what a day!
