Festival 2021 update

We’re pleased to announce that Festival 2021 will run from 20 May until 29 August, with some small changes to our previously published plans.

We’re pleased to announce that Festival 2021 will run from 20 May until 29 August, with some small changes to our previously published plans.

New productions of Janáček’s Kát’a Kabanová, Rossini’s Il turco in Italia and Verdi’s Luisa Miller will appear alongside revivals of our much-loved Così fan tutte and, in a semi-staged concert version, Wagner’s epic Tristan und Isolde. Unfortunately we’re unable to perform Die Zauberflöte as hoped but are delighted that our resident orchestras, the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and the London Philharmonic Orchestra, will instead take centre stage in a series of specially curated concerts.

Safety remains our highest priority. The auditorium will be physically distanced and, together with a reduction in the number of performances, this means that there are fewer seats available this year. As always our Members will have first access to tickets before any remaining seats go on general sale in April. We’ll share more information about public booking in the coming weeks. In the meantime, please read our detailed Q&A for more information on what to expect this summer.
