Video: Sir Peter Hall - The Visionary

Posted On

This short film pays tribute to Sir Peter Hall (1930-2017), Glyndebourne’s former Artistic Director who directed productions between 1970 and 2005.

The film features contributions from many of the people who worked with Sir Peter at Glyndebourne, including Bernard Haitink (Conductor), John Graham-Hall (Tenor), Dame Janet Baker (Mezzo-Soprano), Sir Thomas Allen (Baritone), Stephen Lawless (Director), Jules Crocker (Former Stage Manager) and Elizabeth Bury (Designer).

An extended version of this film can be seen in the Glyndebourne Organ Room throughout Festival 2018. We will also be displaying photographs from Hall’s productions at Glyndebourne in the Upper, Circle and Foyer levels, and the set model for Il ritorno d’Ulisse in patria will be on display in the Organ Room.
