Glyndebourne is now one of the finest and most celebrated opera houses in the world and delivers performances to some 150,000 people across a summer Festival and the autumn Tour.
Founded in 1934 by John Christie and his opera singer wife, Audrey Mildmay, Glyndebourne is committed to presenting opera of the highest quality, commissioning new work, developing new talent and reaching new audiences. Although Glyndebourne receives valued Arts Council support for the Tour and some educational work, the Festival receives no public subsidy.
Glyndebourne is a registered charity, funded by box office income, its members and supporters. The Glyndebourne Festival presents six productions each year in a 1,200-seat opera house built in 1994.
