Why not join us for an entertaining evening of opera like no other.

Following on from the success of Don Giovanni: Behind the Curtain and La traviata: Behind the Curtain, Glyndebourne returns with a new operatic event that will explore just some of the secrets of this uniquely rich art-form.

Audiences will hear spectacular music, see the enchanting set design of The Magic Flute, learn from the cast and the brilliant presenter as the opera is taken apart and put back together again.
