Glyndebourne America

Support Glyndebourne from the USA

Glyndebourne association America was launched in 1971 to help Glyndebourne increase awareness of its work in the United States and thereby to broaden its American base of support.

Today this work is carried on by Glyndebourne America Inc. (“GA”), a registered U.S. Public Charity under Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c)(3).

From the first Glyndebourne Festival in 1934 to the present day, Glyndebourne has fostered a close and collaborative relationship with the United States; offering American singers the opportunity to appear at Glyndebourne and welcoming opera lovers as they come to visit.

In recent years, this support has enabled the presentation of such acclaimed Glyndebourne Festival productions as Wagner’s Tristan und Isolde, Humperdinck’s Hänsel und Gretel and Mozart’s Don Giovanni and has underwritten Glyndebourne’s first Tour production of Puccini’s Madama Butterfly, as well as several U.S.performances including Britten’s Billy Budd.
