Festival 2021 concerts - audience reaction

Hear from the audience about our concert series

This summer the London Philharmonic Orchestra and the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment are filling the Glyndebourne auditorium with music once again, in our series of concert performances.

In this special series, curated by Glyndebourne’s Music Director Robin Ticciati, the two orchestras explore 400 years of music from baroque to contemporary, via four pinnacles of the symphonic repertoire never heard before in the theatrical setting and wonderful acoustic of Glyndebourne.

Read on to find out what the audience are saying about the performances…
