Following the success of Knight Crew in 2010, we have now commissioned Orlando Gough (composer), Stephen Plaice (librettist) and Susannah Waters (director) to devise and create our next large-scale community opera, Imago, an opera which explores ageing in a digital world. Imago will have its world premiere at Glyndebourne in March 2013, and will include up to 70 people aged 9-90 from our local community.

Jonathan Kent's acclaimed production of The Fairy Queen is a fascinating carnival of music, theatre and dance. Purcell's The Fairy Queen incorporates elements of A Midsummer Night's Dream and in addition to Shakespeare's characters, conjures up a wild array of gods and goddesses, nymphs and sprites, fairies and shepherds, dancing swans and figures of dream. Purcell's score takes the form of a series of fantastical masques and contains the composer's finest, wittiest and most inventive score.

It is with great sadness that Glyndebourne has learnt of the death of opera singer Robert Tear at the age of 72. The Welsh tenor sang at Glyndebourne on a number of occasions, making an unforgettable debut as Aschenbach in the 1989 Glyndebourne On Tour production of Death in Venice. He repeated the role in the 1992 Festival. The Sunday Times described it as ‘a splendid performance’, while The Independent noted: ‘at its centre is Robert Tear’s Aschenbach, his experience and artistry evident in every thoughtful inflection.’
