Glyndebourne comes to Bradford

Opera festival live linked to Media Museum

Written by . Published on June 15th 2011.


Glyndebourne comes to Bradford
OPERA buffs can enjoy all the magic of the world famous Glyndebourne Festival thanks to a live satellite link into Bradford’s National Media Museum.
Beamed into the Pictureville Cinema, the season starts with Wagner’s Die Meistersinger Von Nürnberg on Sunday 26 June, complete with a drinks reception, interval drinks and a personal picnic hamper for a taste of the unique Glyndebourne experience.

Die Meistersinger Von Nürnberg tells the tale of a young knight who wins the hand of a goldsmith's daughter with the help of the canny cobbler-poet, and was designed to be a life affirming opera. It is a hymn to the transformative power of young love, the shared joy of song and features a major role for the celebrated Glyndebourne Chorus.
 
Culture vultures can also look to seeing Don Giovanni and Turn of the Screw live from the festival later in the summer.
 
This link from one of Britain’s most enduring cultural bashes builds on the success and regular sell-out performances of the National Theatre’s NT Live cinema screenings.

“Opera fans who can’t attend Glyndebourne now have a great opportunity to join in the live experience, complete with a picnic and drinks reception," says National Media Museum film manager, Kathryn Penny. 
"Anyone who is perhaps interested in trying opera for the first time can come along to enjoy it in familiar surroundings."
 
 Doors open at 2.15pm on Sunday 26 June with the performance starting at 3pm - including two intervals.

Tickets priced £45 (including a drinks reception, interval drinks and personal picnic hamper) are now on sale from the National Media Museum Box Office, online at www.nationalmediamuseum.org.uk/glyndebourne or by phoning 0844 8563797.
