    To mark 50 years of the Tour we will be celebrating with a gala concert of opera highlights.

    Join us for a memorable evening featuring distinguished artists that have starred in Tour performances in the past including Sarah Connolly, John Tomlinson, Thomas Allen, Stuart Jackson and Rosa Feola. Glyndebourne’s ‘stupendous chorus’ (Daily Telegraph) and the Glyndebourne Tour Orchestra will help to bring these classics to life. Funds raised from the concert will be used to invest in the future of the Glyndebourne Tour and to continue Sir George Christie’s original vision of reaching new audiences and supporting a new generation of artists.

    Queen Elizabeth Hall, London
    Tuesday 4 December 2018, 7pm
