Glyndebourne Festival Opera

The Glyndebourne Festival Opera collection comprises of performances from the world-leading opera house, filmed at the Glyndebourne Festival from 2005-2019. Highlights include David McVicar's productions of Giulio Cesare (2005) and Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg (2011); the 2010 revival of Hockney and Cox's production of Stravinsky's Rake's Progress; and the world premiere of Brett Dean's multi-award-winning Hamlet in 2017.

This collection includes:

  • Glyndebourne's celebrated and intelligent production of Nikolaus Lehnhoff's Tristan und Isolde, fortified by Roland Aeschlimann's stunningly effective set.
  • Director David McVicar's spectacular production of Handel's Giulio Cesare, which combines serious insight with entertainment, bringing Handel's masterpiece to life in a powerful, convincing and highly intelligent way.
  • Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg, David McVicar's first production at Glyndebourne, that boasts the dynamic conducting of Vladimir Jurowski as well as a true ensemble cast featuring Gerald Finley, who is 'eminently believable' as Sachs (The Independent on Sunday).
