Support Cendrillon – join the Glass Slipper Circle

Help us to bring this magical Cinderella story to the Glyndebourne stage in 2019.

In 2019, we welcome Massenet’s Cendrillon to Glyndebourne Festival for the first time.
For a minimum donation of £5,000, you can be part of bringing Fiona Shaw’s production to the stage.

Joining a production circle provides vital support, enabling us to bring transformative opera to the stage while also nurturing young singers in the Tour.

Glyndebourne is delighted to welcome back actor-director Fiona Shaw to direct the company’s first-ever staging of Cendrillon. In Festival 2019, Cendrillon is conducted by John Wilson, with Danielle de Niese in the title role.

To join the Glass Slipper Circle, make a minimum donation of £5,000 to support the production of Cendrillon. In return, you receive insight into our work through exclusive events and rehearsals, bringing you closer to the heart of Glyndebourne.

Gifting a production circle can make a special present for the opera lover in your life.
