This year’s Glyndebourne Festival (20 May – 27 August) includes six productions, including Verdi’s La traviata, Mozart’s La clemenza di Tito and Donizetti’s Don Pasquale – as well as Strauss’ enchanting Ariadne auf Naxos.

This year’s Festival offers an extraordinary journey through 359 years of operatic creativity, from much-loved masterpieces to ground-breaking new work. And on each visit there’s a chance to enjoy that unique Glyndebourne experience: picnicking, dressing up and exploring the glorious gardens of this world-class opera house in the heart of the Sussex countryside.

Buy tickets to this year’s Festival from the Glyndebourne website.

Richard Strauss’ Ariadne auf Naxos tells the story of two troupes of actors – one ready to perform a tragedy, the other a gaggle of comedians. But there’s been a change of plan meaning they both have to perform their shows at the same time.

The result is a delightful comedy about ‘high’ and ‘low’ art, with stunning music and a beautiful set in Katharina Thoma’s production.

We’re giving away two tickets to the production on Sunday 23rd July and the prize also includes dinner for two at Leith’s at Glyndebourne’s luxurious Middle and Over Wallop restaurant; afternoon tea for two, including a glass of Champagne each and a copy of the Glyndebourne Programme Book.
