A recording of Laurent Pelly’s witty production of Engelbert Humperdinck's most successful opera, Hänsel und Gretel, has been released on the Glyndebourne label. First performed at Glyndebourne in 2008, the new recording was captured during a live performance of the 2010 revival when the opera was brilliantly conducted by Robin Ticciati. Well-received during its first run, the 2010 revival was popular with critics and audience alike with Alice Coote in the role of Hänsel and Lydia Teuscher as Gretel both receiving critical acclaim.

Picnics are a popular part of every British summer and this year there is even more reason to enjoy some al fresco dining, thanks to the diversity of celebratory events taking place across the country. From the Diamond Jubilee to the Olympics, Ascot to Glyndebourne, the picnic rugs are out in force this summer. Whatever the occasion, Glyndebourne’s new range of picnic wares will add a touch of sophistication to any event. Following the launch of Glyndebourne’s wind turbine we are continuing our efforts to reduce our carbon footprint with a range of new sustainable picnic products.
