UPDATE: Glyndebourne Festival 2021
Following the government announcement that social distancing restrictions will be lifted on 19 July, Glyndebourne has confirmed that it will release more tickets to Glyndebourne Festival performances after that date. Audiences were previously capped at 50% of capacity.
All seats in the opera house’s 1,200-capacity auditorium will now be available for performances between 19 July and 29 August, with additional tickets to Mozart’s Così fan tutte, Verdi’s Luisa Miller, Wagner’s Tristan und Isolde and three concerts by the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment.
Ensuring the safety of its audiences remains Glyndebourne’s top priority. Glyndebourne is strongly encouraging the continued use of face coverings in the auditorium, in line with the theatre industry’s ‘See it safely’ guidance. A number of other safety measures will remain in place for Festival 2021 performances from 19 July onwards, including temperature testing, enhanced cleaning and contactless ticketing.
Glyndebourne chose to invest in a loss-making Festival this year in order to protect jobs and provide work to freelance artists, technicians and craftspeople. Every additional ticket that is sold this summer will support Glyndebourne’s long-term survival.
Public booking for the additional tickets will open at 10.00am on Sunday 18 July from click here
Glyndebourne has confirmed its plans to proceed with its annual opera festival in 2021, with adaptations to ensure the show can go on, even if social distancing is still in place.
Glyndebourne Festival 2021 will run from 20 May until 29 August with new productions of Janáček’s Kát’a Kabanová, Rossini’s Il turco in Italia and Verdi’s Luisa Miller, alongside a revival of Mozart’s Così fan tutte. In a change to original plans, Wagner’s Tristan und Isolde will be presented as a semi-staged concert with a full orchestra, seated on the stage, to do justice to the opera’s epic score.
