Glyndebourne general sale madness 2015

Online general sale started tonight – with queues forming since before 11pm for a 12am start. The madness takes new shape every year. I didn’t even know, as last year nothing was happening yet around 11pm, good thing I texted opera buddy who got himself in queue way ahead of me and got us cheapy standing tickets for the Ravel double bill. I trudged on for another hour for a ticket to Die Entfuhrung and callled it a day when I had to queue again if I wanted something else. Possibly a slip on my part as I was on the phone with opera buddy but there you go. Saul and anything else are left up to chance for now.

  1. I wish opera tickets are as hot a commodity here! 🙂 Hopefully it doesn’t get to be like Bayreuth, tho. What are they up to there now? Like a 6 yrs wait list? 😛

    • Luckily I’m not interested in Wagner at all, so I have no clue about the Bayreuth queues. Glyndebourne is one of the more relaxed Festivals (and you can occasionally upgrade your seat 😉 ) though people are still scared of the dress code. They run standing tickets from about £10 to £30, depending on the production (our standing tickets for Ravel were £15 but the one I got exactly in the same spot for Mozart was £30. Some days of the week are also more expensive). Maybe it’s better opera tickets aren’t a hot commodity there 😉
