Glyndebourne America

Support Glyndebourne from the USA

Glyndebourne Association America Inc. (GAA) 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, Glyndebourne America Inc. (GA) continues and expands upon these U.S. efforts by increasing public awareness for Glyndebourne productions and activities.

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, Glyndebourne America has supported the presentation of such acclaimed Glyndebourne Festival productions as Stravinsky’s The Rake’s Progress, Wagner’s Tristan und Isolde, Humperdinck’s Hänsel und Gretel and Mozart’s Don Giovanni. It has also underwritten Glyndebourne’s first Tour production of Puccini’s Madama Butterfly, as well as several U.S. performances including Britten’s Billy Budd.
