A note from David Pickard, Glyndebourne general director

Two aims have always been at the heart of the Glyndebourne Tour: to present world-class affordable opera for audiences throughout the country; and to provide a showcase for talented young artists.

In 2012 some exciting initiatives take these core ambitions to a new level. Building on our central offering of exceptional productions on the main stage, we will be extending the Tour programme to include performances of chamber works and cinema screenings of Glyndebourne Festival productions.

The Yellow Sofa is an engaging new chamber opera by Glyndebournes first Composer-in-Residence, Julian Philips and will be performed by some of our most gifted choristers.

Cinema screenings in many of our touring locations will allow us to show you more of our work, and I am delighted that in 2012 we will screen David McVicars acclaimed production of Handels Giulio Cesare starring Sarah Connolly and Danielle de Niese.

Mozarts Le nozze di Figaro has played a central role in our history since the very beginning of the Glyndebourne Festival, back in 1934. This new production, directed by Michael Grandage, will transfer direct from this years Festival to the 2012 Tour.

Accompanying this, and touring for the first time will be Melly Stills magical production of Dvoraks Rusalka, conducted by Tour Music Director Jakub Hrůa.

These new developments for the Glyndebourne Tour have been made possible by renewed support from Arts Council England, who share our ambition to present high-quality opera to as many people as possible.

Their recognition of Glyndebournes innovative education work in engaging with young people and attracting new audiences has allowed us to increase the number of schools matinee performances across the country.

I do hope you can join us during Tour 2012 and that you will enjoy everything Glyndebourne has to offer in your area this autumn.
