Champion’s Tuesday - Glyndebourne Supports A Starr Trust Champion

Our young Champion Ayala and her mum Victoria received free tickets from Glyndebourne Opera House for their production of Saul. Fresh from its triumph at the 2015 Glyndebourne Festival, Barrie Kosky’s blazingly original and visually spectacular staging of Handel’s oratorio returned for a first revival, pairing baroque music with contemporary choreography and lavish designs to create an enthralling theatrical fusion of old and new.

Ayala’s mum Victoria said: “It was a fantastic opportunity for Ayala to see all the sights and sounds of an Operatic Production. We loved having a wonderful picnic and being surrounded by all the other people dressed up for the experience. The Opera Saul was very dramatic. It was a great chance to see something completely different from Musical Theatre, giving Ayala a broader view of performing arts.

Our Champions Outreach Manager Mel said: “We were thrilled that Glyndebourne chose to support a Starr Trust Champion to see their thrilling production for free.  Thank you so much Lucy Perry and the team at Glyndebourne for making this possible.”
