See Billy Budd in San Francisco

See our legendary production of Billy Budd on stage at San Francisco Opera, and help to support our work.

This autumn our acclaimed, five star production of Billy Budd is setting sail to San Francisco Opera.

We have worked with San Francisco Opera to offer our supporters a special ticket package that includes:

  • Pre-performance cocktail reception at The War Memorial Opera House
  • A top ticket to the Billy Budd performance
  • Post-performance drinks reception
  • An invitation to a special catered picnic at the San Francisco Chronicle Opera in the Park Concert on Sunday 8 September, where we will picnic Glyndebourne-style in Golden Gate Park. You can find further details here.

The cost for this package per person, is the suggested price of £700, which includes a voluntary donation of £250 to mark 25 years of the new Glyndebourne opera house. This will support Glyndebourne’s New Generation Programme investing in audience, education and artist development.

The package does not include airfare, accommodation, other travel or food and beverage costs.

How can I take part?

If you’re interested in seeing Billy Budd in San Francisco please email and we will be in touch with more details.
