The world famous Glyndebourne opera festival is pretty special. You’ll see opera fans in black tie and fancy frocks boarding the train at Victoria to head for its rural Sussex location this summer, hamper in hand for the extended interval picnicking on the lawn.
This year, there’s an opportunity to peek into the world of Glyndebourne without leaving London. The opera festival will be brought to life on one of the biggest cinema screens in the UK, accompanied by 12,000 watts of digital surround sound, in the Science Museum’s cinema.
Watch a new production of Mozart’s Don Giovanni – recorded at the 2010 Glyndebourne Festival – on the 31 July and join Glyndebourne live on 21 August for their production of Britten’s The Turn of the Screw.
Get into the spirit of things with a Gold package, which includes a hamper for picnicnicking Glyndebourne style with a science twist – under the stars and amongst the space ships – during the interval. Evening dress entirely optional!
To celebrate this new partnership, The Science Museum is offering a Gold package for one lucky winner and a friend to the Don Giovanni screening on 31 July. Just enter the prize draw below:
