Inclusion Statement

Read the Glyndebourne Encore inclusion statement

Some operas in our archive reflect the society and norms of previous ages, containing historical opinions and social assumptions which may offend audiences today. Where once exoticism and orientalism in the presentation of non-European cultures was acceptable, we recognise through our modern lens that this was wrong then and is wrong now. Moving forward we are committed to re-evaluating our approach to creating opera and interpreting its stories. At the same time, we will continue to make our historical performances available, as we believe they constitute a part of our legacy.
