Glyndebourne is great! Just seen a wonderful performance of Humperdincks Hansel and Gretel. What a wonderful opera that is, very accessible, especially for young children.
Hilarious! The witch is a bass in a pink business suit and high heels!
People say that opera houses are snobby but I just think that is ridiculous. We paid £8 for our tickets and the seats were wonderful! When you get a performance of that quality that is enjoyable to everyone, that is something special. It really warms my heart to see performers at the peak of their art enjoying themselves so much and the audience having as much fun as them!
It was great to see lots of children there as well and they seemed to be loving it. Who couldn't?! Wonderful singers, a great orchestra and a set like something out of a fairy tale!
They've got their heads screwed on right! Music is meant to be fun and the energy that that performance had was astounding! I haven't laughed so much in ages!
Cannot recommend it enough!
