Glyndebourne Festival 2012 production wins Best New Opera in annual opera poll

Laurent Pelly’s Ravel double bill, which premiered at Glyndebourne Festival 2012, has been awarded the Best New Opera Production prize in the annual opera poll.

In its second year the Opera Poll saw fierce voting from over 1000 members of the general public and opera aficionados.

David Pickard, Glyndebourne’s General Director said “Everyone at Glyndebourne is delighted to have won the best new production for our 2012 Festival staging of Ravel’s L’heure espagnole and L’enfant et les sortilèges. We are especially pleased because this award is nominated by audiences themselves, and it is thrilling to know that so many people enjoyed the double bill as much as Glyndebourne enjoyed creating the productions. I would also like to thank director Laurent Pelly and conductor Kazushi Ono, together with the full cast and creative teams, for creating such compelling work that resonated so powerfully with everyone that experienced them at Glyndebourne, online at and in cinemas throughout the UK.”

Glyndebourne was also a winner in last year’s inaugural poll receiving the Best Revival accolade for its revival of The Turn of the Screw for Glyndebourne Festival 2011.
