Glyndebourne Opera. More about this print

Glyndebourne is an English country house possibly six hundred years old. From 1934 operas have been staged within the annual Glyndebourne Festival Opera. You can find Glyndebourne House near the historic town of Lewes in East Sussex, England. It has the tradition where you bring your own lavish picnics during the opera intervals that you can enjoy in the lawns. The settings are particularly beautiful,  as you seat by the  ha-ha and looking out to the South Down National Park. 

Fair Ground Exhibition at Gallery 94 in Glyndebourne

This print has been selected to be part of an exhibition called Fair Ground at Gallery 94 in Glyndebourne in 2019.

Firle From Glynde

During the interval in Glyndebourne if you seat on the West side of the gardens by the ha-ha and look South East, you might be able to spot the Firle Estate in the South Downs. I have captured that view in my print called ‘Firle from Glynde’.

Finally, without opera there would be no be Glyndebourne. Below you can read part of the libretto of Handel’s Aria ‘Lascia ch’io pianga’ from the Opera Rinaldo, one of my favourites productions.

‘Let me weep
My cruel fate,
And that I
should have freedom.

The duel infringes
within these twisted places,
in my sufferings
I pray for mercy.’

‘Lascia ch’io pianga
Mia cruda sorte,
E che sospiri
La libertà.

Il duolo infranga
Queste ritorte,
De’ miei martiri
Sol per pietà.’
