Sung in Italian with English supertitles, Puccini’s masterpiece La bohème and a brand new production of Donizetti’s hilarious Don Pasquale will be presented by some of the opera world’s brightest rising stars, wrapped in Glyndebourne’s trademark quality. ‘Simply the greatest all-round opera experience’ says BBC Music magazine.
La Boheme – Tuesday 29 November and Friday 2 December, 7.15pm
A genius of emotional manipulation, Puccini's exploration of the joy, anguish and heartbreak of young love has become one of the most popular operas of all time. Glyndebourne on Tour returns with David McVicar's acclaimed production - a very modern love story which adds a worldly realism to Puccini's heartbreaking score.
Don Pasquale – Wednesday 30 November and Saturday 3 December, 7.15pm
A double first: a new production and a new opera for the Tour. Internationally acclaimed director Mariame Clément tackles Donizetti's witty critique of domestic bliss. Don’t miss Andrei Bondarenko as the doctor, Malatesta – the Ukrainian baritone made the final of BBC Cardiff Singer of the World in June, winning the Song Prize.
