David Pickard, Glyndebourne’s General Director, said: “We are delighted to receive this recognition for one of our DVDs. Laurent Pelly’s wonderful double bill was one of the highlights of the 2012 Festival and it has been captured brilliantly on film. Glyndebourne has been investing in video recordings for over ten years now and recordings such as this allow us to share our work with new audiences right across the globe.”

The 2015 Festival will see Laurent Pelly return to Glyndebourne to revive the Ravel Double Bill with Danielle de Niese taking on the roles of Concepción in L’heure espagnole and the titular Childin L’enfant et les sortilèges.

Danielle said: “Coming home to Glyndebourne to sing is hugely special tome. Playing both an adulterous femme fatale and an androgynous young boy in the same evening will be an exciting challenge and transformation for me as an actress… I am thrilled to be taking audiences on this artistic journey.”
