Productions for hire

Glyndebourne has an extensive repertoire of productions available for hire. Here you find an outline of each production as well as downloadable PDFs with more information, including photographs, plans (not to scale) and an indication of staffing requirements. Many of the productions have been adapted for touring allowing them to fit into smaller venues. For each production the original director and designer must be approached before the hire is agreed. New productions will be updated here annually.
