Liverpool Philharmonic announces partnership with Glyndebourne, the music, the picnic… The full Glyndebourne experience, in Liverpool!

Two of Glyndebourne’s most popular recent productions are to be screened at Liverpool Philharmonic Hall, thanks to a new partnership between the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra and the internationally-renowned opera house. 

Michael Grandage’s acclaimed production of Le nozze di Figaro (“pure joy”, The Daily Telegraph ★★★★★) and Tom Cairns’s opulent production of La traviata (“thrilling”, The Guardian ★★★★), filmed live at the annual Glyndebourne Festival in 2012 and 2014 respectively, are to be screened at the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall for the first time, giving a new audience to these operatic masterpieces.

The screenings are an opportunity for audiences to see Glyndebourne productions in Liverpool, before the Glyndebourne Tour visits the city in 2019. The Glyndebourne Tour takes place every autumn and in 2019 will bring three productions to the stage of the Empire Theatre.

Michael Eakin, Chief Executive of the Liverpool Philharmonic, said:

We’re delighted to be working with Glyndebourne on presentation of these screening. We have regularly presented opera our stages (most recently Sir Bryn Terfel in Verdi’s Falstaff) and are keen to make this a more regular part of our offering. It’s fantastic that audiences in Liverpool will now have the chance to hear more opera from one of the world’s finest companies.”

George Bruell, Director of Communications at Glyndebourne, said:  

Glyndebourne is passionate about taking its operas to as many people as possible and screenings are one of the ways in which we are able to reach a bigger audience. We’d like to thank our friends at the Liverpool Philharmonic for this fantastic opportunity to present two screenings in Liverpool, which we think is the perfect way to preview our return to the city for the 2019 Glyndebourne Tour.”

To celebrate this new partnership, the performances will have an hour-long interval, guests will be offered a glass of fizz on arrival and can also book a picnic hamper, to enjoy the full Glyndebourne experience, in Liverpool!
