Gus Christie and Danielle de Niese expecting a second child
24 July 2020
The couple already have a son, Bacchus, who was born in June 2015. Both families, Glyndebourne staff and colleagues are all thrilled by the news.
Danielle is continuing to perform during her pregnancy and next month stars in the first opera to be performed at Glyndebourne since the easing of lockdown – a new production of Jacques Offenbach’s one-act French farce, Mesdames de la Halle, in a new translation by Stephen Plaice entitled In the Market for Love. The production, one of the first in the COVID-19-era, is directed by Glyndebourne’s Artistic Director, Stephen Langridge and conducted by Glyndebourne Music Director, Robin Ticciati. It will premiere on 12 August in the Glyndebourne gardens.
Glyndebourne will also stream their iconic David McVicar production of Handel’s Giulio Cesare, in which Danielle made her Glyndebourne debut as Cleopatra, on 9 August as part of Glyndebourne Open House. Watch for free on the Glyndebourne website or YouTube Channel.
