If you haven’t managed to get Glyndebourne tickets this summer

   you can still see several performances  which are being broadcast at Picturehouse cinemas around London (including the Gate in Notting Hill).  I’m not sure about Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg which says it is approximately 6 hours long since this might be lovely on a summer afternoon in the country, not inside a cinema, but Don Giovanni and Turn of the Screw are possibilities.

Live: Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg – Richard Wagner
Sunday 26 June, 3.00

Wagner’s warm-hearted Midsummer’s Day comedy is a hymn to the transformative power of young love and natural talent to refresh tired traditions and remake the old world anew. Given its sheer scale alone, any production of Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg is always a major event.
Full price £25, Concessions £21.50, Members £19.50

Recorded: Don Giovanni  – Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Sunday 31 July, 6.00

Compulsive philandering is one thing, but brutal rape and murder are quite another. As an unrepentant Don Juan continues to elude his earthly pursuers, other-worldly powers are forced to intervene, leading to a fire-and-brimstone climax that ranks among Mozart’s most earth-shattering achievements.
Full price £15, Concessions £13, Members £12

Live: The Turn of the Screw  – Benjamin Britten
Sunday 21 August, 6.00

It is indeed ‘a curious story’, as the Prologue says. A remote English country house, an old and faithful housekeeper, two young orphan children and an eager new governess sent down from London to look after them. But all is not quite as it seems in the sheltered world of Bly. Spirits from the past increasingly encroach upon the realm of the living. Britten’s brilliantly scored, insidiously compelling adaptation of Henry James’s novella takes its themes of childish innocence and adult corruption, then twists and turns them to disturbing and ultimately devastating effect.
Full price £15, Concessions £13, Members £12
