Glyndebourne one of the Ten Best Cultural Attractions in the world
Glyndebourne chosen as one of the Ten Best Cultural Attractions in the world
Glyndebourne has been recognised as one of the top ten cultural attractions in the world in a new book from National Geographic.
The book, called ‘The 10 Best of Everything: An Ultimate Guide for Travelers’, is in its third edition and for the first time offers four brand-new "top 10" lists —Ten Best Cultural Attractions, Ten Best Irresistible Restaurants, Ten Best Spas and Ten Best Historic Homes.
Appearing in the list of Ten Best Cultural Attractions means that Glyndebourne is being recognised as one of the most outstanding organisations in its category.
Glyndebourne was founded in 1934 by John Christie and his wife, the soprano Audrey Mildmay and by the start of the Second World War it was an established opera house; international both by reputation and in the engagement of international artists. This international reputation continues today with audiences travelling to Glyndebourne from across the world or enjoying its opera in cinemas or at home through pioneering live broadcast initiatives.
‘The 10 Best of Everything’ was written by Nathaniel Lande and Andrew Lande and is published by National Geographic Books.
